Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole is looking forward to their friendly with Real Madrid.

Cole has never faced Real before in his career.

"It will be great to catch up with Carlo Ancelotti, who is a great guy. We loved working with him at Chelsea and hopefully he can have a good first season in Spain," said the England defender.

"Real Madrid will be a huge test for us, they're obviously one of the best teams in the world and I've had some good games with Cristiano Ronaldo down the years, so I hope this will be another exciting match."
