Real Madrid’s decision to appoint Carlo Ancelotti as their new head coach is proving to be the correct choice as the Italian tactician has already secured a piece of silverware. The Copa del Rey was set to be played against their rivals Barcelona and even with the absence of C.Ronaldo, Madrid still managed on overthrowing the team of Gerardo Martino as they lifted their 1st trophy in this season.
“I think we played very well, we were playing against a very strong team. We had to suffer at times but I think it is a deserved victory. We are very proud to have won this competition. More than anything; I want to congratulate the players.”
“The atmosphere inside the stadium from both sets of supporters was fantastic, I am happy to be here and to have experienced this spectacle” Ancelotti said to teh italia costarica probabilitá site.
Gareth Bale scored the winning goal which edged the victory towards Real Madrid. Ancelotti has more chances on snatching more trophies as they are in 2nd place in the League and have to fight against Bayern Munich in the semifinals of the Champions League.
Barcelona also recently experienced a switch in managers as Tito Vilanova was replace by Gerardo Martino but things aren’t going so well for them after they were knocked out of the Champions League and lost the chance to lift the Copa del Rey, the only chance they have of securing a silverware in this season is through the League and even that seems to be out of reach.
Real Madrid needs to win every single match that remains in the Spanish League if they want to have any hope of winning the title. Athletic Madrid is leading the way at the top of the League and has already proven that they are genuine contenders on winning it in this season.
