According to recent reports, Real Madrid have regained their faith in Carlo Ancelotti following the club’s outstanding performance in the Copa Del Rey semifinal against Barcelona, as well as their quarterfinal victory against Chelsea in the Champions League. Despite these rumours, Mario Cortegana and Guillermo Rai believe Carlo Ancelotti’s future at the club is in threat.
Ancelotti ‘s future at Real Madrid might be at risk
According to the two Athletic writers, the Italian manager and his team are unsure whether they will stay at the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer. Privately, the coach is irritated by the criticism that has spilled to the media. The complaints were directed at his entire management, including team selection and tactical decisions. During his first season at the Bernabeu, the veteran manager encountered a similar circumstance. Florentino Perez, for instance, is impatient with players who fail to bring his cherished prizes, the Champions League and La Liga. Real Madrid are already on the danger of losing the league crown. Thus Ancelotti ‘s assistance in delivering the UCL will be critical.
Real Madrid will meet Manchester City in the semifinals, which might be an uphill battle for the Spanish powerhouse. Due to their excellent defensive game, former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has already picked Manchester City in the encounter. Florentino Perez, on the other hand, dislikes managers who get too close to the players. He prefers a strongman who can command the locker room. That is why Real Madrid has hired managers like Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane twice in the last decade. While Ancelotti has a positive perspective in the dressing room, the Italian coach must perform by the conclusion of the season if he is to retain his position as Real Madrid manager the following season.
It promises to be an important period not only for Ancelotti, but also for Real Madrid in general.
