Ancelotti is perfect for Madrid, says Sacchi

The legendary Italian coach has hailed his compatriot’s work at the Santiago Bernabeu and believes that his team could change the face of football


Former AC Milan boss Arrigo Sacchi believes that Carlo Ancelotti is the perfect coach for Real Madrid.

The Italian took over at the Santiago Bernabeu from Jose Mourinho in the summer of 2013 and led the club to their 10th Champions League title in his first season in Spain.

They are currently on a 20-match winning run and Sacchi believes that the current crop of Madrid stars could have as profound an impact on the game as the Barcelona, Milan and Ajax teams of the past.

“Carlo is a fantastic man, a good person. He is very intelligent. He could be a doctor in psychology.

“He is the perfect coach for Real Madrid, he is capable of taking them to a different level. They could yet get even better, but Carlo won’t let it go to his head.

“Three teams in history have reinvented football: Ajax, Milan and Barcelona. I hope that Real Madrid will be the fourth.

“When you start thinking that everything is easy, that’s when you lose. He has an ability to manage football and people that nobody else does.

“There are many great coaches, but they don’t stand out like Carlo does. Madrid are improving a lot, as they did last season, even though they changed several players.

“Now that he has settled, Kroos is playing magnificently. It took some time to achieve; it’s like an orchestra that needs a pianist and is given a violinist.”
