Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that his future lies with Real Madrid and he intends to honor his contract, despite the club’s recent heavy defeat in the Champions League.

He has stated that he is staying put and will see out his contract, which runs until 2024. Although there have been rumors linking him to the Brazil national team job, Ancelotti’s commitment to Real Madrid appears to be unwavering.


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.

Ancelotti’s stock had appeared to plunge given the manner of defeat at Manchester City, but it seems Perez is in no rush to make any changes and has backed the unflappable Italian once more.
