Former Real Madrid striker Fernando Morientes, currently working as a coach in the club’s youth setup, has offered words of praise for Carlo Ancelotti, who has been confirmed as the new coach at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Speaking at a promotional event at the Madrid training complex, Valdebebas, Morientes said: “I don’t know him personally, but people have spoken to me about him. He’s an individual with a lot of experience, both as a player and as a coach. He’s the type of coach that players like. I think that he’s the ideal coach for Real Madrid.”
