Ancelotti: "Ronaldo is not leaving Real"
In an interview with "Bild", the new coach of Bayern Munich, Carlo Ancelotti, spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom he collaborated for two years at Real Madrid.
Carlo Ancelotti gives very few chances to the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Real Madrid. The Italian coach was asked about the Portuguese star in an interview with "Bild" and spoke with the best words about him.
«I really like Cristiano's professional behavior. Many ask me how difficult it is to work with players like Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it's actually very easy. You don't have to say anything to such footballers. They are very disciplined and focused", Said the former Real and Paris coach.
When asked if Ronaldo would ever be transferred to Bayern or any other team, the Italian replied: "Everything is possible, but it is very difficult to see players like Cristiano playing in another team. The same is true of Messi, Lam, Miller and Maldini, who have spent their entire careers in Milan. Such players find it difficult to change teams, because they care a lot about their clubs».
As for who he considers the best player in the world, Ancelotti explained: "I don't know if Cristiano is the best. They have been competing with Messi for the "Golden Ball" for the last seven years and I think that this battle between them makes them even better.».
Ronaldo will be absent from the Super Cup.
The misfortune of Cristiano Ronaldo continues, as the Portuguese will be absent from another final.

Real Madrid face the "permanent" holders of the Europa League on August 9 in Tronheim, Norway, and everything shows that the Portuguese does not manage to be ready.
For Zinedine Zidane, the problem is not so much the absence of the 31-year-old striker from the final, but the period of abstention from the pitch which is estimated at three to four weeks.
There is also the possibility that he will not be able to catch up with the initial stage of preparation in America, with him preferring to stay in Spain and make a special recovery program.
