Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has said Carlo Ancelotti should not worry about his future not matter whether he is kept on as boss of Real Madrid or not this summer.
The Italian enjoyed a spectacular start his his managerial reign at the Santiago Bernabeu, winning four trophies in little more than 14 months. That trophy haul included the Champions League, the club’s 10th in total, along with the Copa del Rey, European Super Cup and World Club Cup.
But he has come under increasing pressure since the turn of the year after Madrid suffered a downturn in form. They were beaten in the Copa del Rey by Atletico de Madrid, let go of their lead at the top of La Liga, and looked less than convincing as the edged past Schalke in the Champions League.
Speaking to American radio station SiriusXM, Ferguson, who spent 27 years at Old Trafford, said: “I wouldn’t worry about his future, that’s for sure. For me, Carlo is one of the best managers I have known and one of my great rivals and that’s why I think he’ll never be short of work.”
Ancelotti has been linked with Manchester City should the CItizens get rid of Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the campaign. He has managed AC Milan, Chelsea and PSG before arriving at Madird, winning the title in Italy, England and France.
