Ancelotti: We want to realise our Decima dream

The 54-year-old is preparing for his seventh final in the competition but says the meeting with city rivals Atletico is special

Carlo Ancelotti says he wants to “realise the dream” of completing La Decima with Real Madrid.

Ancelotti’s side head into Saturday’s Champions League final with city rivals and Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, aiming to win the competition for the 10th time in their history, 12 years after they last lifted the trophy.

Since then, Los Blancos’ main objective has been to reach the milestone, though the best they have mustered has been a push to the semi-finals in each of the last three years.

Now, as they prepare to meet Diego Simeone’s men in Lisbon, Ancelotti says this final is “special” and is determined to bring the historic title back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

“There’s a thin line between an obsession and a dream,” he told reporters. “But my aim is to realise the dream.

“A final is a final, there’s not much difference to previous finals but there is something different. We began the season with the objective of making the final and winning the Decima and we have made the final – that’s what makes it special. 

“Rather than thinking about pre-game speeches, my main focus is just on the tactics and those instructions to the players, how to play the game.”

The 54-year-old won the European Cup twice with AC Milan as a player and won it twice again as manager of the Italian club, but is still eager to win it with his current team.

“This is my seventh final and we are lucky to be here. Personally I don’t have to ask any more of this competition. Everyone knows how important this competition is for Real Madrid. On my first day I said I’d do all I could to help Real Madrid win this competition.

“A lot goes through your mind before a game like this. What matters is to be calm, train well, to be on top of things and give the team clear instructions. You have to enjoy this experience. 

“I have clear memories of my last press conference before the 2007 final and I said: ‘This may be my last press conference, let me enjoy it.’ It wasn’t, but this one may be – so let me enjoy it.”

Real remain in the dark as to whether Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Pepe will be fit to face their rivals and the former Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss says a decision is yet to be taken.

“We will assess the injuries at training. Cristiano has trained without problems but Pepe and Benzema haven’t training this week, we will take the decision for tomorrow after this session which they will take part in.”
