Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is having sleepless nights these days after few media reports suggest bosses at the helm are preparing to fire him. But, 55-year-old Italian is trying to pretend as he is not worrying with any decision club bosses take about him and only suggests he would like to serve the side for his full term and prove why he was brought in at Santiago Bernabéu. There were few names suggested in few Spanish sports daily who could fill his space in the next season that includes former Manchester United temporary manager and current Napoli boss Rafael Benitez. This is despite the fact that Ancelotti helped Spanish giant win both Champions League and Copa del Rey titles in his first spell for Spanish side. The coming Saturday, when Real will host Getafe in its last season game, Ancelotti future will be decided. Talking about his future with Championship league defenders, 55-year-old said, “We have not spoken yet. I’ve not spoken with club, or them with me. I am still thinking as Real Madrid coach, until the club tell me any different. After the game, or on Sunday or Monday, we will meet and talk about the future. My feeling is that I will stay, I would like to continue, am motivated to do so as I like this club, these players.”
Refusing to leave the side with some bitter memories, Ancelotti agrees to coordinate with the formalities if he is asked to leave the job and added, “It is a moment when the club will make a decision, an important decision. I have a good relationship with the club, and will still have it if they decide on a new coach. It is not such a big thing for me. I am happy to continue if that happens, I would like that, but if not I’m happy with my two years here.
“If not I will take my path, and the club their path. But I will always remember two fantastic years — including maybe the happiest moment in Madrid’s history. So I would not think about being sad, but happy at giving everything I could. After that, these are things that can happen in football.”
He as well talked about Rafael Benitez who is assumingly going to take his place at the helm and said, “If there is talk of other coaches, I am not annoyed, that is normal. There is always lots of talks, lots of names, every year. I am surprised that anybody is surprised by this. Everyone has their opinion, thinks they can coach. Some people think my work is good, others that I could have done better. That is what’s great about this world.”
