Real Madrid will have a press conference on Monday (25/5) and the media expected that the club will confirm the future of manager Carlo Ancelotti. No one can deny the coach’s hard works for the team as he won the Champions League, Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA’s Club World Cup in his first season in charge at the Bernabau.
However, the fact that Real failed to win any silverware this campaign and finished two points behind La Liga champions Barcelona, is undoubtedly a big strike for his career. Concerning the issue of Ancelorri’s future in Real Madrid, the players gave supports to the coach. But speculation is growing that his exit will be confirmed when chairman Florentino Perez faces the press at 6.30 UK time.
Cristiano Ronaldo gave appraisal to Ancelotti after giving his eighth hat-trick of the season in Saturday’s (23/5) clash against Gestafe. According to World Player of the Year, Ancelotti is a great coah and amazing person. He also hopes that they will “work together next season.”
On the other hand, the coach has said that if he is relieved of his responsibilities by Real, he will undergo surgery and take a break from the game. He will be out for some times despite offers from some of Europe’s leading clubs. “I will stop for a year, also because I have a serious reason for stopping,” stated the coach. He is supposed to have an operation because of his cervical stenosis.
He made it clear that he would either continue at Real next season or take an extended break from the game. Ancelotti added that he has already booked accommodation with his wife in Vancouver, Canada, where the surgery will be carried out. As an addition, the current favorite to succeed Ancelotti is Napoli’s Spanish manager, Rafael Benitez.
Milan’s manager Adriano Galliani’s trip to Madrid on Monday (25/5) will therefore prove to be in vain, if he was hoping to get back the coach to take over his club from next season.
