Ancelotti: 'They didn't call me from Brazil'


'Best Messi in history? I saw Cruyff and Maradona play (ANSA)

"They haven't called me from Brazil, but if they were really interested I would appreciate it. My position, however, is clear: I will never tell Real Madrid that my adventure here is over."

Carlo Ancelotti said this in a press conference on the eve of the championship match against another Real, that of Valladolid owned by Ronaldo Fenomeno.

    Ancelotti was then asked if, after the World Cup in Qatar, Lionel Messi, for many years a symbol of Barcelona, ​​is the best footballer in history.

"Hard to say - replied the Real Madrid coach -. Every era has had its great players. Certainly the phrase 'Messi is the best in history' will not come out of my mouth. I had fun thanks to so many good players , and I train every day for the Ballon d'Or. And I've seen Cruyff, Maradona play...".

    And speaking of the Ballon d'Or: how is Benzema?

"He returned from vacation on December 10, and was quite well - he replies, almost as if to agree with those who maintain that the forward could have been available for France in Qatar starting from the round of 16 -. He worked with the team, and played half an hour and 45 minutes in friendlies.

    I think he will soon show his quality."

    A joke on the January transfer market: "Everything is closed on entry, there will be no signings - explains Ancelotti -, because we have an excellent 'squad'. We don't know the exits, because perhaps some who play less will want to leave. In general, compared to December 2022 we are better off".

    Meanwhile, for the future, the 16-year-old Endrick, the new star of Brazilian football, has already been hired.

"He's a great player, a real talent - says the Real coach -. The club has reached an agreement, even with his family, for 2024 and that's good news".
