Real Madrid coach Ancelotti: This team has b***s

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has hailed the character of his team ahead of their clash with Real Mallorca.

Ancelotti was asked about style, given that there is a debate rumbling on around Barcelona right now over whether winning or remaining true to a philosophy is more important.

"You have better chances to win if you play well," he started, chuckling.

"But, what is to play well? It can also mean defending well.

"The key word for me is balance, to do well with the ball and without the ball.

"When it comes to style, each coach has to look at the history of a club and qualities of the players the coach has available."

For now, the Italian is in a much stronger position than Ronald Koeman is in at Barcelona, but he knows that things could change.

"Every team has problems at some point during each season," the coach pointed out.

"Things are going well for us at the moment.

"We've had six matches and five of them have been away, at tough stadiums.

"So, this team has b***s.

"Then, when there are problems, coaches have to work hard to solve the problems."
