Real Madrid boss Ancelotti: We've never discussed Mourinho

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti insists he's never spoken with management about the Jose Mourinho era.

It's been claimed Ancelotti was brought in to replace Mourinho due to his calmer approach to coaching.

Ancelotti told The Times: "[The club] didn't speak about what happened last year with Mourinho, and I didn't ask. To reach the semi-finals of the Champions League is not bad. It's not good enough for some clubs, but it's not bad.

"The supporters here don't just look to win; they look at how you play. At Real you have to win with style. It's not enough to win here. For example, Fabio Capello was sacked after he won the league. Chelsea were a more physical team, but here the technical skills of the players are the best."
