Sergio Ramos is pleased the Italian has taken over.
One of Jose Mourinho’s biggest critics at Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos, has declared his joy that Paris Saint-Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti has taken over at the club.
When Mourinho was in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu the current Chelsea boss and vice-captain Ramos clashed on the training pitch following a defeat to fierce rivals Barcelona.
The Portuguese manager and the defender argued about tactics and club skipper Iker Casillas was also ensued in the comments made against the ‘Special One.’
It was the beginning of the end for the 50-year-old in the Spanish capital, where he was booed by some sections of the supporters and he suffered the most unsuccessful spell of his managerial career.
It’s not too unlikely to think that Ramos was pleased when Mourinho departed Spain to return to the Blues and the 27-year-old has been quick to voice his delight at the appointment of Ancelotti.
“I am very pleased that Carlo Ancelotti has joined Madrid,” the defender told AS.
“I can only speak well of him and look forward to working with him.
“You have to recognise what Ancelotti has achieved in the game, managing some of the best clubs in Europe.
“He has achieved this because he brings great values with him, and knows how to get the best out of every player he works with.”
The Italian arrives at the Bernabeu having brought the Ligue 1 title to PSG for the first time in 17 years and has a wealth of experience from other European greats such as AC Milan and Chelsea.
Ramos meanwhile will be hoping he can win more silverware at Madrid under Ancelotti, as the Spain international is already a world and European champion and since his £23.8m move to Los Blancos in 2005 from Sevilla, he has won the La Liga three times and the Copa Del Rey once.
