Vieri: Ancelotti is a guarantee

Christian Vieri has labelled Carlo Ancelotti ‘a guarantee’ for success at Real Madrid, based on his track record in other countries.

Despite difficulties in being released from his Paris Saint-Germain contract, Ancelotti is still seen as Madrid’s first choice Coach to replace Jose Mourinho this summer.

It is a possible move that has another of the tactician’s compatriots enthusiastic.

“Ancelotti is great, he has always done well. He is a guarantee,” Vieri commented after taking part in a Italy and Japanese legends match in Tokyo.

“I this as so in Spain. He has won in Italy, in England, in France…you can see him winning anywhere.

“He is a relaxed man, he can do a great job at Real Madrid. Madrid are a great team, whilst Ancelotti is someone who can bring tranquillity, which is important.”

Vieri, who won the Pichichi title with 24 goals scored during the 1997-98 campaign with Atletico Madrid, reflected on Los Colchoneros’ recent work under Diego Simeone.

“This year they have become even greater than in recent years, they are doing well.

“They are a great team, with very good fans. That is why they are stronger now. Every year they show they are a great team.”
