Carlo Ancelotti has said that Real Madrid’s clash against his former club AC Milan in Dubai will be a great spectacle of football.
Real Madrid is in a good form as it has won all of its previous 22 outings and Carlo Ancelotti has called on his players to maintain their focus and retain their winning momentum.
Real Madrid will be playing against AC Milan, former employer of Carlo Ancelotti, on Tuesday and the Italian boss was full of respect for the Rosonneri.
“It is a warm-up game, both teams will be treating as such, but it will also be a great spectacle of football. The two teams with the most amount of European Cup titles shall face each other. It is good to be a part of this event”, said the coach.
The Real Madrid boss also said that he has a great relationship with AC Milan’s boss Pippo Inzaghi and that it would be an opportunity for him to meet his good friend.
“It is going to be a very special match for me. I have a lot of history with AC Milan and I also have a great relationship with the AC Milan’s manager Inzaghi, who was one of my players. It will be a special day for me. It is an honour to play against them because I have very fond memories of the club.”
Meanwhile, AC Milan’s boss Pippo Inzaghi is also eager to face the 10 time European Champion Real Madrid and said that the clash against Los Blancos “will always be different from the rest”.
“We are very happy to be in Dubai and know that the stadium has been sold out for some time with over 100,000 ticket requests,” Inzaghi told reporters.
“There is clearly a hunger to see these two teams, so we hope to give them a great game. AC Milan vs Real Madrid will always be different from the rest, as it’s a special team between the sides with the most Champions League trophies.
“It’ll be fun to face off and we hope to bring the supporters a real spectacle.”
