Former Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has declared his admiration for Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and wished he had the opportunity to play under him.

After witnessing Real Madrid beat his former club Juventus, the Los Angeles FC defender spoke glowingly of Ancelotti describing him as fascinating.

Speaking after the pre-season match, he reflected on Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti and his performance at the club since returning last summer.

“The results talk for him, he’s a really good guy,” Chiellini told MARCA.

“I am sad because I would have liked to have been trained by him because he is one of the best in history and one of the best of the last 30 years for sure.

“At a club like Real Madrid, the coach doesn’t have to teach many things, you have fantastic players and you have to keep the group in the best way possible.

“You saw in the last games, Marcelo and Toni Kroos are on the bench talking to Carlo like old friends. You see what Carlo is able to do and I’m fascinated by it.”
