Carlo Ancelotti compared the Premier League and Serie A.
Ancelotti: “No game is needed around Ronaldo.”
Carlo Ancelotti also spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos. The Italian specialist worked with these players at Real Madrid in 2013-2015.
“There is no need to build a team around Cristiano Ronaldo. He just had to create comfortable conditions on the pitch. I don’t think such a player should be chained to a strict system in defense because he is more involved in the attack, and some players have to defend themselves more.
Of course, they have to work together, because the team is an essential part of the game, but forwards like Ronaldo can score goals in all matches. They do not need much knowledge to protect themselves.
Working with such a fantastic player is the easiest way to train because they are professionals. They have the right motivation and character. This is the easiest way, no doubt.
Sergio Ramos is also an incredible master. I think his best qualities are not tactical knowledge and technique, but the character and motivation of those around him. In my time, Ramos was the most important person in this role and helped us in the crucial moments of the games. ”- Sky Sports quotes Carlo’s words.
