Isco convinced Real Madrid will succeed under Ancelotti
Madrid fans were left disappointed last season as the team fell short in each of the three main competitions, but Isco feels the supporters could be in for a treat this campaign having experienced what Ancelotti is looking to build.
"The team is looking very good to me. Pre-season has been very good, we've improved game by game. We're ready and raring to go," said highly-rated playmaker Isco at a press conference.
"He (Ancelotti) is very approachable and friendly and he's always checking in on you. His philosophy of football is perfect for this Madrid team. We have the perfect coach for us and we'll see a great Real Madrid side this year.
"He has told us we must keep the ball, be bold and be creative. We also have to press high up the pitch so we don't tire ourselves out. His philosophy is ideal for players that like to use the ball well.
"We're going to see an attractive Madrid side and we're going to do great things."
