Ancelotti does not have Mourinho's ego, says Javi Moreno

The former AC Milan attacker has nothing but praise for the Italian coach and believes he’s the right man to replace the Portuguese

Former Spain international Javi Moreno says Carlo Ancelotti is the ideal candidate to take charge of Real Madrid as he “doesn’t have an ego like Jose Mourinho’s”.

Moreno, who worked with Ancelotti during his time at AC Milan, has nothing but praise for the current Paris Saint-Germain coach and is confident that he has what it takes to adapt to the Spanish game.

“Carlo doesn’t have an ego anything like Mourinho’s. I’m completely against Mourinho’s style, but Ancelotti is something else entirely,” the former striker told Marca.

“He’s very close to his players and is a good person. He’s a very calm, well-mannered coach, a peacekeeper; he’s not the type to get hot under the collar. He’s a very tactically-minded coach. He drilled the team very thoroughly and was really shrewd about the way he set up the players on the pitch.

“Obviously his style now will be different to the one he used over 10 years ago in Italy, but he will be able to adapt to the demands of Spanish football.

“Ancelotti has proven what he is capable of at AC Milan and PSG, dealing with dressing rooms full of players who are as good, if not better, than the ones at Real Madrid.”

Ancelotti has an ongoing contract with PSG, but he has told the Ligue 1 champions that he wants to leave the club for Madrid this summer.

Les Parisiens are reluctant to let go of the Italian coach, but sporting director Leonardo admitted that they are ready to open talks with Madrid.
