Real Madrid’s Ancelotti Shuts Down Exit Rumors, Vows To Stay On
Carlo Ancelotti used his press conference on Friday to firmly address recent rumours of his exit from Real Madrid. The Italian coach remains resolute in his commitment to Los Blancos and is determined to see out his contract with the Spanish giants.
Ancelotti Confirms He’s Staying Put
Ancelotti made it clear that he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid any time soon, stating:
“We will definitely be here next season, without doubt. We will respect the contract.” The coach also expressed his gratitude to the club for their support and loyalty, adding: “The president wants me to stay because he continues to be very kind to me, and we have to look forward. The club is very calm, they show me a lot of affection.”
Brazil and Chelsea’s Interest
Despite rumours of interest from Brazil, where the national team head coach role is currently vacant, and Chelsea, who are looking for a new manager this summer, Ancelotti is focused on his current role with Real Madrid. The club is currently third in the La Liga table and is set to face Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League next week.
Kroos and Vinicius Jr Out for Cadiz, Ready for Chelsea
Ancelotti also confirmed that midfield maestro Toni Kroos and star winger Vinicius Jr will not be part of the team travelling to Cadiz, but they will be available for the crucial Champions League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next week.
The Bigger Picture
Ancelotti’s recent refusal to distance himself from the Brazil job had sparked rumours of an imminent exit from Real Madrid. However, the coach has now made it clear that his focus is solely on his current role and delivering success to the club. Despite speculation to the contrary, Ancelotti is committed to Los Blancos and has the full support of the club’s president and management.
Real Madrid’s next match is against Cadiz in La Liga, without Kroos and Vinicius Jr. But the pair will be back for the Champions League match against Chelsea. Ancelotti’s focus remains on winning both matches and continuing to build a successful future for Real Madrid.
