Argentine legend Hernan Crespo has paid tribute to Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Crespo played for Ancelotti while in Italy.

He recalled: "Ancelotti is an extraordinary person. He has given me a lot. He was my coach in my first years in Europe. Two years at Parma and then at AC Milan. You could say it is not very long when you consider how close we are; it is almost 20 years since we met. It is always a pleasure to come and meet him."
