Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has praised boss Carlo Ancelotti for bringing a winning mentality around the club while being a humble and approachable person.
Los Blancos have won three titles since he Italian took charge in the summer of 2013, with the most significant being the Champions League. They also lifted the Copa del Rey last season and started this campaign by winning the European Super Cup.
In an interview with RealMadrid TV and Realmadrid.com, the Brazilian defender said Ancelotti was a master tactician who lets his players know exactly what they need to do on the field. He added that away from the dugout, the boss is humble and kind, making the dressing room a more relaxed place than under previous managers.
He has allowed us to enjoy the games and also to improvise. He knows we are very confident. We do everything for him, for all the help he has given us and for what he tells us in every game. He is a very easy-going person, who says everything to your face and that is key. I’m sure that even those who have played very little would say the same,” he stated,
And he added: “He is a winner and he instils that humility and the desire to get started and do everything in order to win. We knew that we had to be extremely united in order to win something.”
