Carlo Ancelotti motivates Real Madrid‘s players to come from behind to beat Manchester City and reach the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.
Despite trailing 1-0 after 90 minutes, Los Blancos scored twice in stoppage time and once in extra time to set up a final meeting with Liverpool in Paris.
When Carlo Ancelotti was asked after the match, he said many things to convey his feelings. Ancelotti said: “When everyone thought the game was over, it was enough of a good combination,”
“We put all our energy into it. To win you need a bit of luck.”
“They were a very tough opponent, but the team never gave up. We had everything: sacrifice, luck and energy. It was an intense match that we played very well.”
“Something strange has happened in this Champions League season. We have played against very strong teams, against all the strong teams.”
“The credit goes to the players and to the fans who push, push and push… The weight of the shirt and the pride of the club also play a part.”
“The feeling I have is that I am very happy to reach the final,”
“Again against Liverpool, which is three Champions League finals as a manager against them.”
“I lived in Liverpool for two years, and it’s a derby for me.”
“I know Jurgen [Klopp] well, I have the utmost respect for him and his coaching staff. It’s going to be a fantastic final. It’s going to be a very close final.”
