REAL MADRID | CARLO ANCELOTTI
"If you play with Cristiano, James, Benzema... you’re not defensive"
Carlo Ancelotti defended Rafa Benítez’s team: "It’s a solid group, conceding little and undefeated. They’ve become tighter and that’s why they are being tagged as defensive".
Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of Rafa Benítez’s Real Madrid side. The Italian coach spoke on Sky Italia and gave his overview of the 2015-16 version of Real Madird: “They are a solid team, they concede little and are unbeaten this season. They’ve become more solid and this is why they’ve been tagged as defensive. It’s not easy being defensive if you field the likes of Ronaldo, Benzema, James, Modric and most of all when you are Real Madrid”.
The former Madrid coach also focused on his future plans: “I may move back to Italy although I do like the Premier League too. In football you have to be ready for everything. Chelsea? I had a good time there, but they have the right man at the moment to resolve their problems”.
Ancelotti also talked about this season’s battle for the Serie A title, which is more open than in previous years. “My favorite is AS Roma due to their quality up front. Napoli are also in with a shout as are Inter, who despite not playing then most attractive football are also in with a shout due to their fine results”, he concluded.
