Real Madrid players love Ancelotti - Benzema

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema says the players love playing for coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti led Real to a Copa del Rey and Champions League Double last season.

"He is a very calm person, who knows how to get important messages across without getting nervous or getting other people nervous.

"He is a coach who is dearly loved in the dressing room," said Benzema.

"You know that he is sincere when he talks to you. He's is not a role-player."
