Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has said he is delighted the club has appointed Carlo Ancelotti as the new manager.
The Italian left his post at Ligue 1 champions PSG to become Jose Mourinho’s successor after agreeing a three-year deal.
The 59-year-old has a trophy laden CV having won two Champions League titles with AC Milan, as well as domestic titles in England, Italy and France among others.
Speaking to Madrid sports paper AS, Ramos said Ancelotti was the perfect man for the job and he was confident he will lead the club to success – and in particular the quest for the Decima – Real Madrid’s 10th Champions League.
He said: “I am very pleased that Carlo Ancelotti has joined Madrid. I can only speak well of him and look forward to working with him.
“You have to recognise what Ancelotti has achieved in the game, managing some of the best clubs in Europe. He has achieved this because he brings great values with him, and knows how to get the best out of every player he works with.”
