Ancelotti, I had some personal problems with Gattuso


In Riad there is Real Madrid-Valencia for the Spanish Super Cup. Ringhio's reply: "Work problems but he is the top" (ANSA)

Elected best coach in the world (ahead of Pep Guardiola and Morocco coach Walid Regragui) by the world federation of football statisticians, Carlo Ancelotti spoke in Riyadh where his Real Madrid face Valencia for the Spanish Super Cup, a match which is played in Saudi Arabia where to definitively launch football they want to do things big.

Even with the friendly, repeatedly announced by the local media, on Thursday 19 between Paris SG and a mix of the best players from Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr.

In the intentions of those who organize, and those behind it, it should be yet another challenge, the first on Saudi soil, between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but Al-Nassr coach Rudi Garcia pointed out that he could not guarantee the presence of CR7,

"After that, the relationship hasn't always been good - added Ancelotti -, because we had some personal problems, but I don't want to talk about them".

"From that Milan that I coached - he continued - many coaches came out, each with his own style: Gattuso, Pippo Inzaghi, Nesta... Gattuso's teams are very intense, he gives a very clear identity".

A joke about another of his former players, Cristiano Ronaldo, is inevitable.

"He and Bale (who has just announced his retirement) were legends of our club - said the Real Madrid coach - and I wish them the best. However, the best demonstration of what they want now in Saudi Arabia is the presence of Cristiano here".   

Gattuso, with Ancelotti work problems but he's top

- "Ancelotti knows that I have a lot of respect for him, both on a human and football level. The problems between us were at a work level, but for me he remains one of the best coaches in the world "It all happened when he was coaching Napoli, I arrived in December and the press began to say that the team was physically ill. The problem arose from this, I personally have great respect for Carlo".

So Rino Gattuso, in the Ryad press conference, replied to Ancelotti that he revealed - again today, speaking to journalists - that he had problems with the current Valencia coach.

The semi-final between the club of bats and Real Madrid is scheduled for tomorrow, starting at 8 pm Italian time.

Betis and Barcelona will take the field on Thursday.
