Madrid are Ancelotti’s ‘best’

Carlo Ancelotti believes his Real Madrid side have all the ingredients required to be the best team he has ever coached.

The Bernabeu outfit lead La Liga by three points, are in the Copa del Rey final and are all but through to the Champions League quarter finals.

“I have had teams with a lot of quality but this team has experience, youth, character and personality,” Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It’s difficult to compare them to teams from the past but they could be the most complete team I’ve ever coached.”

The 54-year-old, who has also enjoyed spells at Milan, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain, was then asked about his future prospects.

“I am very happy to be here,” he answered. “I’m giving my best but I always believe Coaches in today’s football depend on results.

“In the league we have an advantage but it is a different sort of competition compared to the Champions League or Copa del Rey.”
