Carlo Ancelotti has said his future lies at Real Madrid and he will see out his contract despite the club’s thumping Champions League exit in midweek.
Ancelotti was speaking at his press conference ahead of Sunday’s trip to Valencia. When asked about his future, the Italian insisted he would stay in charge and that he has retained the support of club president Florentino Perez.

Ancelotti confirmed he had met with Perez, telling reporters: “We spoke yesterday. We had meeting and he supports me. We talked about Wednesday’s match, we talked about this season and the two seasons we’ve had here. We continue forward with the same appetite to do things well.”
Ancelotti’s future has been an ongoing theme as he approaches the final year of his contract. Having been repeatedly linked with the vacant Brazilian national team post, it seemed the matter had finally been settled after Los Blancos’ emphatic Champions League wins over Liverpool and Chelsea and taking more silverware on the form of the Copa del Rey.
