Ancelotti and his assistant prioritising staying at Real Madrid next season



Carlo Ancelotti has seemingly turned around his situation at Real Madrid. The dark clouds hovering over his future come June seemed impossible to turn back. Yet, it is in Ancelotti’s blood to make the impossible possible.

Over the past month, the Italian tactician has rejuvenated Los Blancos. The men in white are dancing on the field once more and are the favourites to not only lift the Copa del Rey but a second consecutive UEFA Champions League.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, Ancelotti’s priority is to stay in Madrid and see out his contract. The journalist also adds that the manager’s son and assistant coach Davide Ancelotti also prioritises staying at Real Madrid.

The report, in a flash, put end to so many of the rumours circulating in the media over the past month.

For starters, Ancelotti is unperturbed by the club’s open links with Mauricio Pochettino and has handled the case with grace. There is no element of disrespect felt on his part.

Moreover, the story of Davide Ancelotti wishing to move away from his father’s shadow to try his first solo venture in Europe can also be put to bed.

Most importantly, Ancelotti’s desire to stay in Spain closes the doors to a possible move to the Brazilian national team in the summer.

The Selecao were said to be desperately hoping to sign the maestro, and though players like Vinicius and Rodrygo publicly acknowledged the interest, it does not appear to be happening.

The 63-year-old has overseen 103 games in his second stint at the club, winning 72 and losing only 17. Furthermore, he is on course to win every competition there is to win at Real Madrid in his second stint if his side lifts the Copa del Rey next month.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
