Speaking to L’Equipe, Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier has claimed that he is an admirer of Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Galtier took over as the manager of PSG this past summer, replacing Mauricio Pochettino. The French tactician has spent his entire career in his homeland, having coached the likes of AS Saint-Etienne, OGC Nice and LOSC Lille, with whom he even won the Ligue 1 title in 2020/21.

Having been handed the reins at Parc des Princes, Galtier has already won the French Super Cup in his short time in charge of the team, while Les Parisiens also sit atop the Ligue 1 standings.

The 56-year-old was talking about his career and football management in general during which he was asked if he had any idol in the game. In response, Galtier named Ancelotti as someone he looks up to, saying:

“I have a lot of admiration for Carlo Ancelotti, he impresses me a lot. I’m very attentive and observant to how Carlo manages his team and how he’s able to reverse incredible situations.”

Ancelotti returned to Real Madrid last year for his second stint after having managed the club between 2013 and 2015 when he had quit PSG to join Los Blancos.

Having come back to the Santiago Bernabeu, the Italian tactician masterminded the La Liga and UEFA Champions League title triumphs with Real Madrid, further cementing his status as one of the most successful managers in the game.

Ancelotti has led Real Madrid to a 100% winning start across all competitions in the new season as well, with the Merengues sitting at the top of the La Liga table, while also having won the UEFA Super Cup already.

Real Madrid will be aiming to continue their recent winning streak when they take on third-placed Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

Los Blancos have picked up three wins in three games against Villarreal, Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid. Given that Barcelona already have a lead at the top of the table, Carlo Ancelotti’s men cannot afford any slip-up against Sociedad tomorrow.

Ahead of the much-anticipated contest at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Ancelotti has announced the Real Madrid squad list for the game.

Dani Carvajal, who trained normally today, is still not back on the roster, with Ancelotti already admitting that the Spaniard could return against Valencia next week.

Meanwhile, David Alaba, Aurelien Tchouameni and Lucas Vazquez also remain unavailable while Ferland Mendy misses out after picking up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid.

Rodrygo Goes, who also sustained a knock in the game against Atletico, is fully fit and on the squad list for the Real Sociedad encounter. Eden Hazard is also back after missing the last two matches with an injury.

Castilla midfielder Mario Martin, who made his senior debut against the Rojiblancos is retained on the list by Ancelotti.
