The Italian coach believes his team can overcome anything this season and says the current Bernabeu squad are like a family to him
Carlo Ancelotti believes his Real Madrid team can keep getting even better, insisting there are no limits to their potential progression.
The European champions are currently on a club-record 17-game winning streak and sit top of La Liga after 13 games.
Madrid have also already secured first-place in their Champions League group having taken maximum points from their five matches and Ancelotti believes there is much more still to come, saying his players’ capacity for constant improvement is there for all to see.
“It is very hard to say if this team can get any better, but I think it can through hard work,” he told reporters.
“The players are accustomed to playing a certain way and we must not place any limits on how good they can get. There are no limits.
“We are working well and the players are doing a great job. This is a really good squad, one that takes its football very seriously.
“We are a very large family, we have the utmost respect for each other and we have to be grateful for that. The most important thing is to keep winning and playing well.”
While the coach had kind words for his players, he also rated his own performances so far this season very highly.
“I’m personally on a great run,” said Ancelotti. “Things are going well, I have a great relationship with the players, we have shared objective which we will fight for together.
“Hopefully we can keep this run going for a long time. We can overcome anything with this squad.”
