Zidane's got everything it takes to coach Real Madrid - Ancelotti
Carlo Ancelotti: "Zizou was a great player and he has a lot of charisma, and that is very important when you are dealing with other players. He's got everything it takes to coach Real Madrid". PSG vs Bayern Munich
Tomorrow’s game: "It’s special because I have so many great memories of my time at Real Madrid. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the people I worked with during those two years. It’s a friendly game, the final one of our tour before official competition starts, and that’s why I hope we have a good game. It’s a new experience for me to find myself up against Real Madrid".
Zidane: "Zidane was my assistent and last season he won the Champions League; I hope that it all works out well for him in Spain, and obviously a little less in Europe... We spoke a lot when we worked together and I knew he'd make a great coach even then. Zizou was a great player and he has a lot of charisma, and that is very important when you are dealing with other players. He's got everything it takes to coach Real Madrid".
Similarities with Zidane: "Every coach has their own style, their ideas and personality. A team is never the coach's, it's the club's. The club is always more important than the coach".
Julian Green: "I'm not a magician. I don't know what will happen in the future but he has to keep working hard and have belief in his abilities. He's at a great club which is involved in a lot of competitions but the most important thing is believing in your dream and fighting for it".
If you had to single out one Real Madrid player... "I have a lot of affection for all of them. I can't just pick out one, because that would be a lack of respect to the rest and also to my current players. I am living a new experience and I am really enjoying the team I am in charge of - they have a lot of quality. It's a new challenge and all of us will be trying to do the best we can".
