Florentino Perez: I Want Carlo Ancelotti to Be Real Madrid’s Sir Alex Ferguson

Florentino Perez appears to be warming to the thought of some stability at Real Madrid given the hugely successful year the club has had under Carlo Ancelotti.

Not only did the Spanish side win a historic tenth Champions League title, they scooped the Copa Del Rey, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup in 2014.

And according to MARCA, Perez wants Ancelotti to be the Real Madrid version of Manchester United managerial legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

Report Jose Felix Diaz wrote:

The two understand each other so well that he has even been heard to say, “We want Carlo to be Real Madrid’s Ferguson”.

As well as sealing a historic four-trophy haul this year, Madrid have managed to get the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo and add several stars players to their squad, including Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez.

It would be a huge improvement for the club if Ancelotti could even stay in charge for a fifth of Ferguson’s glorious spell at Old Trafford.

The Scot was in charge of United for 27 years and is regarded as the most successful British manager ever after lifting 38 trophies with the club.
