Ancelotti didn't hesitate to name players such as Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Lucas Vazquez, Nacho Fernandez and Isco, none of whom were on international duty this summer and have therefore been present for pre-season since the start.
"We have worked a lot," said Ancelotti. "The players have done very well.
"There is a lot of quality in the youngsters and a great commitment from the veterans. I really liked the commitment of Carvajal, Nacho, Marcelo, Lucas and Isco, players who have won everything and still have the desire, enthusiasm and hunger to have a great season as we would all like [to have]."
The former Everton manager is clear about which style of play he is keen to impose on the team ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
"We have to take into account the history of this club," noted Ancelotti.
"The team has to play well, showing the quality they have. Real Madrid's history is [all about] energetic football, with intensity with the ball and without the ball, which is what today's football requires."
