The former Chelsea manager says he has developed his own method for dealing with the inordinate influence of agents on modern football.
"I do not speak to agents," said Ancelotti. "They are not part of my profession in my opinion.
"I talk to the players directly. And I hope the players also approach me when there are problems rather than send their agent."
He also told Die Welt: "I think agents hold too much power in football. Many clubs have given agents a lot of power."
