Damascelli held the interview and told Cadena Cope: "I did the interview on Saturday and I confirm word for word what was published in the interview.

"Ancelotti tells me that 'we are not going to the Club World Cup because it is total nonsense on an economic, sporting and health level of the players'.

"It was not an informal interview. We talked about something else that I will not publish so that there is no other misunderstanding."

After the controversy that arose with the interview,  Damascelli shared that, "I spoke with Ancelotti today and he is calm.

"Ancelotti is a man of great honesty and loyalty and a unique professional."
