Carlo Ancelotti pledges his future to Real Madrid

Published

on


Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has pledged his future to the club by suggesting that leading Los Blancos is the only thing he sees for himself over the coming years.

Ancelotti returned to Real for a second spell at the club only last summer, winning both La Liga and the UEFA Champions League in his first season back.

The 63-year-old Italian, who was sacked by Real in 2015 only a year after delivering La Decima, has a contract with the club until the summer of 2024. Only last month it was reported in Spain that Real are already considering handing him a new deal.

“For this year and the next, Real Madrid. Then Madrid, and again Madrid. Then we’ll see,” Ancelotti said when asked about his future ahead of this week’s clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.

“Here they say that it is very easy to be the manager of Madrid: you just you have to win the matches,” he added.

Sunday’s draw with Osasuna was the first time this season that Real haven’t won a game, which gave Barcelona the opportunity to leapfrog them into first place on goal difference.

Ancelotti was dismissed by Real the first time after failing to build a debut season in which he had won the Champions League – the club’s first European triumph since 2002. The former Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Napoli and Everton coach gave himself a huge target to try and replicate from his first season this time around.

Conor Coady responds to ‘daft’ question about Liverpool allegiance

Published

on


Conor Coady has told England teammate Jordan Henderson to do better in his goading after the Liverpool captain taunted him over his Everton connection.

Coady was a product of the Liverpool youth system and made a solitary appearance for his boyhood club in the 2012 Europa League. He has since moved on to Huddersfield Town and Wolves before joining Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton on loan last summer.

Speaking on the latest episode of Lion’s Den from England’s World Cup camp, though, Henderson could not resist trying to wind up Coady by quizzing him on his allegiances.

“Conor, we are all England here,” Henderson said. “But what I really want to know is: are you blue or red?”

Henderson then started laughing, which prompted a similar response from Coady, who appeared both irritated and amused by the question.

“It’s so poor from him,” Coady said while smiling. “We have banter all the time. Of course, I am playing for Everton. He knows deep down.

“So, for him to come out there and ask that question is daft. Of course, I am blue. Of course, I am blue, without a shadow of a doubt.

“For him to say that…you know what I am going to go back there sit down and have a coffee with him. I will give him a bit. That’s nowhere near good enough from the big fella. Blue all day long.”

Everton have a clause allowing them to sign Coady permanently from Wolves this summer for a fee of just £4.5m.
