Neither Antonio Conte nor Raúl González Blanco. Real Madrid sign Carlo Ancelotti and set aside the option of having the coach who has been Italian champion and the ‘new’ Zidane. Conte was a heavy hand and Raúl does not want to burn. The bet is to bet on the known, on an experienced coach with a left hand who, as has been shown, is the best that works in changing room management. ‘Carletto’ is a veteran of the benches. He knows the club, the demands, the League and has the values ​​that the leaders demand. He is charismatic, a winner and knows how to handle situations of tension and pressure when they appear throughout a season.

The image of a coach who has prestige and left a good memory in Madrid is important for the leaders. Ancelotti left his mark. He had quite a few hits, he reached regularity with a squad that had the best version of Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo. And he was fired when the team was eliminated in the semi-finals of the Champions League against Juventus in 2015. The president of Real Madrid fired him claiming that “we need a boost” and the Italian left, as they say at the club, in an elegant way . In a different way from what Zidane has had with the publication of a farewell letter that has caused disappointment in the noble part of the club.

Florentino Pérez’s decision is to give a second chance to the coach who made history in the Lisbon final against Atlético de Madrid and won La Décima. Ancelotti is the strategy that most convinces the president of Real Madrid to counter the departure of Zinedine Zidane. To support the new project, the name of the Italian physical trainer, Antonio Pintus, is pointed out, who is the person who is considered key in the success that Zidane had when he won the double (League and Champions) in 2017. Pintus has been the last two seasons working at Inter and it is one of the keys for the Italian team to become competitive again and win titles.

Agree to make changes

Ancelotti He had a contract with Everton until 2024, but when he met the interest of Real Madrid he did not hesitate. He asked that his departure be negotiated and return to Spain, to the capital, and face the challenge posed by Florentino. We have to rebuild a team and a project that this season has run out of titles. Florentino and the Real Madrid leaders have talked about changes, analyzed the situation of the players who are in the squad, the most veteran (Modric, Marcelo, Isco, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez, Nacho …), the youngest (Vinicius, Rodrygo , Fede Valverde …) and also those loaned (Odegaard, Ceballos …). Ancelotti is considered to be the ideal person to start a new cycle and the changes that, according to the club, Zidane did not want to make.

The relationships between Real Madrid and the Everton they are fluid. Last season they reached a satisfactory agreement for all with the departure of the Colombian James Rodriguez at zero cost. This has also made it easier for Ancelotti to leave. The other option for the bench and the one that could have been more interesting was to Mauricio Pochettino, But when in Madrid they found that Paris Saint Germain closed the doors to the Argentine coach and refused to negotiate, they chose to call Ancelotti and ask about his predisposition. It has been positive and it is once again seen how ‘Carletto’ wants to do important things at Real Madrid.
