Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Carlo Ancelotti, the coach of Real Madrid, praised Xavi Hernandez, the coach of Barcelona, who has been criticized for the poor results of the Catalan team recently.
Barcelona, under the supervision of Xavi, stumbled in its last matches in the Spanish League, falling to fourth place on the standings with 31 points, 4 points behind the leader, the Merengue team.
When Ancelotti was asked if he would like to give advice to Xavi Hernandez, he replied, “I will not give him any advice. He knows football well, and he knows that sometimes there is criticism. This is normal.”
He added while speaking in a press conference prior to Real Madrid’s match with Italian club Napoli in the Champions League: “He has the experience of dealing with all of this very well. He is younger than me, but he knows the atmosphere well. He has all the resources necessary to deal with this situation appropriately.”
Carlo Ancelotti also congratulated Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone on renewing his contract with the team until 2027, saying: “Simeone is a special case, like Wenger or Ferguson. The life of a coach is very short, and we must congratulate Simeone because it is not normal to stay for a long time in the club.” Any club.”
