Mancini also faced Real last season when in charge of Manchester City.
â€œPlaying in the BernabÃ©u against Real Madrid is fantastic, the best thing in life, and we hope to do our job well. Carlo (Ancelotti) is one of the best coaches in Europe, heâ€™s trained some very good teams and Iâ€™m sure that heâ€™s doing really well here. Heâ€™s a very good, calm person.
â€œI think that Madrid were strong last season and theyâ€™re strong this year too. Maybe they can improve this year with Bale, whoâ€™s a great player, and because of the change of coach. But weâ€™re talking about the very best and playing here is always difficult."
