Carlo Ancelotti: I want to stay at Real Madrid


Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti gave a press conference prior to the friendly game Los Blancos will play in Dubai against AC Milan. The Italian ruled out a possible job as Italy’s national team boss and claimed he wants to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“I’m not thinking about the Italian national team. My wish is to stay at Real Madrid. I would like to continue working with this club and this squad, because it feels very good,” Ancelotti confessed.

The former Milan coach spoke about his objectives for 2015: “We are going to try to win the Champions League twice in a row, because it’s something nobody has achieved. It will be tough, but we’ll try. We want to be as competitive as last year. We want to win all titles.”

Asked about the friendly against his former club, Ancelotti admitted it will be special. “I coached their manager back in the day. I have a beautiful history with this team. It’s a match between the two clubs with most European Cups.”

“All the players that have made the trip are available and will have minutes of play. It’s a good match to prepare our next official game. We want to continue our good run and please our fans in Dubai,” the Italian added.

Asked about Sergio Ramos injury, Ancelotti explained he doesn’t know “when Ramos will return. He’s been training in Madrid and we’ll learn about his state of form in the next few days.”
