Real Madrid manager Ancelotti: Our history keeps us going when we are gone

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has said the club’s Champions League history has spurred them on this season.

After coming from behind to beat PSG and Chelsea, the Spanish giants did it once more against Manchester City on Wednesday to book their place in the final.

And Ancelotti believes his team are motivated by the club’s record 13 Champions League titles.

Speaking to BT Sport, Ancelotti said: “I cannot say we are used to living this kind if life, but what happened tonight it happened against Chelsea and also against PSG. If you have to say why, it is the history of this club that helps us to keep going when it seems that we are gone.

“The game was close to finished and we managed to find the last energy we had. We played a good game against a strong rival. When we are able to equalise we had a psychological advantage in extra-time. I have no time to think about this [losing the game]. It was difficult as City had control of the game but the last opportunity we were able to go to extra-time.

“I am happy to be there in the final, in Paris against another great rival. We are used to it. It will be a fantastic game for football.”
