Champions League: Ancelotti speaks on Real Madrid vs Liverpool final

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has said he is looking forward to the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Ancelotti will be the first coach in history to coach in five Champions League finals.

Los Blancos qualified by beating Manchester City 3-1 on Wednesday night, to overturn a 4-3 defeat from the first leg of their semi-final.

Ancelotti, who quit as Everton manager last summer to return to the Bernabeu for his second spell in charge, has previously faced Liverpool in two Champions League finals as a coach, when in charge of AC Milan.

“I’m very happy to play another final, against a great team, Liverpool,” Ancelotti said.

“I played against Liverpool as a player in 1984 [in the European Cup final] and then [as coach] in 2005, 2007 and again now. I lived in Liverpool for two years. For me it’s a derby, I’m still an Evertonian.”
