Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the final preparations of the royal family for the meeting with Valencia tomorrow, Sunday, in the 35th round of the league, as well as the details of his meeting with Florentino Perez, president of the Merengue.
Real Madrid need a new striker? Now is not the time to talk about next season, ”said Ancelotti during the presentation of the Real Madrid-Valencia match.
He continued: “We have been talking to the club, but at the moment we are evaluating what happened only on Wednesday (lost to Manchester City) and we are already talking about the future, but now is not the time.”
And of Manchester City’s unanswered four-way loss in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals and exit from the continental championship, Ancelotti said: “Manchester City’s game was bad, we are sick, this season is good, but last season is unforgettable.”
He noted: “We were able to play better and we are not satisfied with our performance in the league (which Barcelona decided at the start of the last matchday), but we fought to the end in other competitions and won 3 titles.”
On his future at Real Madrid, the Italian manager commented: “I had a meeting with club president Florentino Pérez and he expressed his support and we maintain our agreement to move forward and do good deeds.”
He noted: “Does Real Madrid guarantee you that you will fulfill your contract until the end (in 2024)? Yes, and I will keep my enthusiasm just like when I came here.”
Ancelotti stressed: “Enthusiasm grows after defeats and there is no doubt that the dream of being at Real Madrid always makes you do your best.”
And he added: “An offer from the Brazilian national team? Everyone knows my situation very well. I have a contract with Real Madrid until 2024 and I want to continue it.”
