Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has slammed FIFA president Sepp Blatter for his attack on Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real chiefs are furious with the way Blatter mocked their star man.

Ancelotti said: "I know that our president has sent a letter to FIFA asking for them to rectify what I consider to be a disrespectful comment about a very serious and very professional player. I completely agree with my president. I have not spoken with Cristiano Ronaldo about this. He trained very well today, as always. He shows every day that he is a great player and he respects everyone. He should stay that way."
