Speaking to the press ahead of the Champions League final against Liverpool at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday night, Carlo Ancelotti reassured that the atmosphere within the Real Madrid dressing room is calm.
As transcribed by AS, Ancelotti said: “It has been a very, very good season for us, and we are very close to achieving the maximum. We will try everything. The atmosphere is good, calm. This team manages these games very well; the veterans help the youngsters to maintain the good atmosphere, with ambition and confidence.”
When asked if Ancelotti himself was able to keep his nerves in check, the Italian replied: “I’m really enjoying my time at the club. I am very happy, very calm. I know some worry will come, but that is combated by looking at the faces of my players. They give me a lot of confidence.”
Ancelotti also acknowledged the support that Madrid might receive from Everton fans.
“I have good memories of my time in the blue part of Liverpool. I know that tomorrow they will be supporting us, because of their rivalry with Liverpool.”
