“I know how much the supporters of this club want to beat Liverpool and we don’t have long to wait to put the matter to the test. I would not describe a trip to Anfield as mission impossible, nothing is impossible in football,” says Ancelotti. [The Guardian]
Watch highlights from Ancelotti’s first training session with the Blues.
“He [Ibrahimović] is a good friend of mine. I have trained a lot of fantastic players. I know he finishes his period in the United States, I don’t know what his idea is. If he wants to come to Liverpool to enjoy he can come -- but not to play!,” says Ancelotti. [ESPN]
“He’s obviously a fantastic manager with a lot of experience and a lot of success, he definitely knows what he is doing. All of the boys, and the fans, are delighted with him joining the club. Obviously we’re very happy and happy we’ve managed to get him to come and manage the club and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season with him,” says Gylfi Sigurdsson on Ancelotti. [Echo]
