Former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that it is every coach's dream to manage a club like Los Blancos.
Ancelotti also spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo and admitted that as a coach, you don't need to give too many instructions to a player of his caliber.
It was back in 2013 when Ancelotti became the Madrid manager and guided them to their famous ‘La Decima’ Champions League triumph under his guidance.
With Ancelotti as the Madrid manager, Cristiano had received full freedom to express himself on the pitch as he wanted to.
Finally giving the reason as to why he did that, Ancelotti told Goal, "You don't have to build a team around Cristiano Ronaldo and as I said with Zidane, you have to put them in the more comfortable way on the pitch."

He added, "I don't think you have to build strict tactics with this player defensively because there are players who are more involved in the attacking phase and there are players who have to be involved more in the defensive phase."
Revealing his intentions behind his decisions for Ronaldo, Ancelotti said, "Of course, they have to work together because the team is the most important part of the game, but strikers like Ronaldo who are able to score every single game, you don't have to give too much information defensively."
Hailing the Portuguese maestro, Ancelotti concluded, "It is the easiest way to be a manager, to manage a fantastic player because they are professional, they are serious, they have personality, they are motivated so it is the easiest way."
