Ancelotti has final say on his immediate future

Carlo Ancelotti has final say on his future amid rising exit rumors

May 20, 2023 By Oscar Rojas
Voices within the club demanded a change in the team's dugout, but the Italian boss seems to have other plans for next season.

The past few days were quite complicated for Real Madrid and their coach. There were many fans and experts claiming for Carlo Ancelotti's exit after their embarrassing exit from the UEFA Champions League, and following all those comments, the Italian boss has finally made up his mind on whether leaving the club or staying around until 2024.

Speaking in a press conference earlier today, the tactician has shared details of a conversation he had with president Florentino Pérez, who assured him that the team's coaching spot will still be his to handle for the 2023-24 season.

"We spoke yesterday. We had a meeting, and he showed me his support. We talked about Wednesday's game, we talked about the season we've had and the two seasons that we've had. We move forward, with the same desire to do things well," Ancelotti stated.

Then, after being asked if the club would keep him around for next season, the coach simply stated: "Yes."

Ancelotti then went on about how the players were hit by that last Champions League game of the season, but he also pointed out how it could compare to what his team has done since he took over almost two years ago.

"We're evaluating what we've done. The last game was very bad. We're all hurt by that. But right now the season has been a good season. And the last two seasons have been unforgettable," Ancelotti added.

Asked about his possible links to the Brazilian National Team, Ancelotti referred to his contract to end all controversy.

"I think everyone knows my situation. I have a contract until June 30, 2024, and I want to see it out. Everyone knows that," Ancelotti said.

Then, Ancelotti aimed a few digs at some of the team's critics, especially against those who dared to criticize one of the most influential players for his team in recent years: Karim Benzema.

"Doubting Karim Benzema doesn't make sense. A player of that level can have a bad game, but it wasn't him alone. Karim is still a very important player, a legend at this club. On Wednesday the team didn't get it right, not just Karim," Ancelotti concluded.

The coach hinted that he will put up the best possible squad in his match against Valencia, even if they have no chance of catching up with Barcelona at the top of the table.
