Ferrara: Ancelotti at Madrid’s level

Ciro Ferrara have given his backing to Carlo Ancelotti working well as Real Madrid Coach, even if he believes the position at the club is not so significant.

Retired centre-back Ferrara worked as a player under Ancelotti at Juventus and, having moved into the coaching circuit himself, backs his former boss to come good at the Santiago Bernabeu, should he manage to move across from current side Paris Saint-Germain.

“I worked with him for two years and he was always very good,” Ferrara told AS ahead of Juventus’ legends match against Madrid later today.

“He is a great Coach and a great person, above that. He is always available for his players.

“Madrid are a top club. They have a special aura, when you play against them it scares you.

“But it is not about what Coach they choose, their history is not determined by a technician or a player. But it is by the club, their philosophy, the fans.

“There are few Coaches at the level for Madrid, that’s true, and Carlo is one of them.”
