Carlo Ancelotti reveals Florentino Pérez’s ambitious plans for 2022

Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid coach, gave an interview to the newspaper ‘Corriere dello Sport’ where he has reviewed all the news of his team, but has also analyzed the complex situation that football is going through right now, a sport that Ancelotti has lived for more than 40 years. “Football must change and quickly. Reduce games, we play too much and badly, the quality has dropped, the players can’t take it anymore, some refuse to be called up for the national team. There is physical and mental fatigue, more injuries, I think it’s time to say enough “, has affirmed.

In this sense, Ancelotti has positioned himself against having a World Cup every two years as UEFA intends to implement. “Fewer games, I reiterate, and two stoppages for the national teams. I discussed it with Wenger. The footballers, I am sure, would lower their salary if the calendar were cut, and the coaches the same. Football, as it is, will not hold. The idea of ​​the Super League was born from the demand for this change. “

Asked by Real Madrid, Ancelotti dropped that the summer of 2022 is going to be important and with many changes. That is the idea that Florentino Pérez has. “In a year the new Bernabéu will be ready, Florentino has very serious intentions for July “, said. The journalist, upon hearing this, asked him if he was going to sign Mbappé and Haalland, to the two footballers. Ancelotti laughed and just said “let’s talk about it later …”. His return to the Bernabéu was “a fantastic surprise, although I had never lost contact with the club. If it were up to me, I would stay for life, there is no better place for football and to live. In Madrid everything is unchangeable. “The only thing that changes are the coaches. The same physiotherapists, utilleros, journalists, the same vision, the same demand for greatness despite the damage of the pandemic,” he replied.

In this sense, Ancelotti has affirmed in the interview that “I will not be angry when Florentino throws me out” and the coach is at a stage in which he just wants to be at peace. This was stated when asked about the attacks of Leonardo, PSG sports director, on Real Madrid. “In other times I would have responded differently, but I’m in a phase of life where I just want to be at peace with the world. I have been in football since 1977 … Almost 46 years, and 30 training. I exceeded 1200 games, I lost count. I don’t have the time or the will to fight. When Florentino wants to kick me out, I won’t get angry. “

The veteran coach, little resembles Luis Enrique, Simeone or Guardiola, coaches who, wherever they go, and whatever the squad they have, try to implement their game system. Ancelotti is not like that. “The clever coach is the one who adapts the game to the characteristics of his players. It would be an idiot if, with a forward like Vinicius who has a motorcycle under his feet, he did not bet on the counterattack. Another example: if I have Cristiano, I look for a way to get the ball to him often, I don’t ask him to go back. Same with Ibra. There are two types of players: those who make a difference and those who must run. I don’t believe in ideologies like guardiolismo, sarrismo … I believe in the identity of the team. “
