Carlo Ancelotti is widely expected to leave Real Madrid after the Spanish club concluded the season in the worst possible manner by conceding three goals at home to Getafe.
Even though the match ended in a 7-3 win for the Los Blancos, the atmosphere inside the Santiago Bernebeu was extremely subdued as the crowd had just witnessed Barcelona lifting the league title yet again. Ancelotti has failed to deliver the la Liga Crown in his two years in Madrid. Even though he has brought the 10th European cup that was cherished by the Madrid faithful, the club were 30 seconds away from being defeated by Atletico Madrid in the final.
It is undoubtedly going to be seen as a series of failure for the Italian manager despite having won the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup titles. Despite this, the interest around the former Chelsea boss is unlikely to wane anytime soon. There have been reports that clubs like Manchester City and AC Milan will consider the possibility of hiring the manager. After the match against Getafe, Ancelotti revealed his future plans. He has a meeting scheduled with the Madrid board in the next week. Even if he is sacked, Ancelotti does not plan to continue working for another 12 months.
“My future is clear in my head. I will continue here at Real Madrid or I will stop for a year. I think we are going to meet next week to clarify the future of the club. This is football, especially at a club like Real Madrid it is normal to be questioned after part of the season didn’t go well. It is part of my job. Last season we won the 10th european Cup and this year is a different story. I won’t forget what we did last year or what happened this year. You have to consider everything,” said Ancelotti.
