Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has given his backing to manager Carlo Ancelotti, claiming that the Italian tactician is the perfect coach for them as he understands the ideologies and philosophy of the club very well.

Ancelotti is currently in his second stint with Real Madrid. The veteran manager first held the reins of the team from 2013 to 2015, during which he led Los Blancos to La Decima.

Having returned last year, Ancelotti once again masterminded another UEFA Champions League triumph while also leading the team to La Liga and Spanish Super Cup victories.

The new campaign also started with the UEFA Super Cup triumph for the Merengues, but things have gone a little off track in recent weeks as they have fallen behind Barcelona in the La Liga title race.

While that may be the case, Ancelotti continues to have the full backing of president Perez. Speaking to Tuttosport (h/t Fabrizio Romano), the Real Madrid supremo said:

“Carlo Ancelotti is the best manager for Real Madrid. He’s perfect as he understands our values and ideas, so players can also feel the same. We’ve great relationship and he’s the perfect coach for us.”

Real Madrid have won just one of their last four matches in all competitions and are now trailing Barcelona by five points in the La Liga standings.

Despite enjoying the confidence of the president, Ancelotti must turn things around or find himself under increasing pressure in the hot seat at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid take on Cadiz in their final La Liga game on Thursday night before teams break off for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
