Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has revealed the secret to Real Madrid’s success under Carlo Ancelotti last season.

Ancelotti returned to Santiago Bernabeu last summer and guided the club to a league title and Champions League triumph last season.

According to Luka Modric, Real Madrid were able to achieve so much under Carlo Ancelotti last season due to the calmness and stability he brought to the club.

“In La Liga, we got off to a particularly good start from the very beginning,” Modric said.

“A new old coach arrived, Carlo Ancelotti, who found a lot of players from his first era at Madrid. This made it easier to adapt to the new course, after all the great years with Zinedine Zidane.

“Ancelotti brought some new calmness, stability and created an environment of mutual trust and faith in one’s strengths.

“It wasn’t strange to me, because as much as some tried to belittle the strength of this group of players, I was personally convinced that we still have a top team.

“Things came together for us, we made a strong run and by the end we deservedly and dominantly won the 35th title, my third.”

Real Madrid won the La Liga with a 13-point advantage over second-placed Barcelona.

We are also beat the champions of France (Paris Saint-Germain), former European champions (Chelsea), the English champions (Manchester City) and Liverpool in the final to win the Champions League.
