CARLO ANCELOTTI IN …

… Champions League title compared to his previous successes in the league: “This title was definitely the toughest. Nobody thought we could win it. That gave commitment, confidence, struggle and a good atmosphere to the team – plus the individual quality of our fantastic players. We deserved it, we’ve suffered a lot since the round of 16, but we never gave up.” Liverpool are a big opponent and have not lost many games this season. I must stress that winning the Champions League is easier with Real Madrid than with any other club. Because of the history and because of the passion of the fans, they are special fans. The structure of the club makes it special. I am very happy to win four titles In the Champions League but I’m much happier now that I’m back in Madrid We had a great season and I’m going to the President and Jose Angel (Sanchez, managing director; editor)As I’ve said many times, be forever grateful. We managed to create a good atmosphere.”

…the last:We managed tonight’s match very well. The key was not to give depth to the Liverpool strikers. The four defenders played very well. When Liverpool reduced their pressure in the second half, we handled the ball better.

…the classroom: “I stay with good vibes around us, it’s amazing. I have a lot of career years under my belt and it’s really hard to be able to create that kind of atmosphere because sometimes there are self-centered people in the dressing room or players who just can’t stand that. When they’re not. You play. With that I stay with the ease of training this team. Looking at the day I keep calm in the locker room as far as preparation is concerned because the kick-off is late. But I’ve never seen nervousness, just calm down. Unbelievable (Laugh). I went to my training room by myself, the players were very relaxed and had a lot of self-confidence. It comes through the history of this club.

Returning to Madrid: “After four years of fighting to fight for titles for various reasons, returning to Madrid has been a huge success for me. At the moment I don’t think about the titles I won. I am happy with the title.”

… Vinicius Jr.: “He gained the confidence he needed. He didn’t play at the start of the season, Vinicius had always played two games. He improved against the efficiency of the goal. The rest did not change. He is more successful in front of goal now and takes longer. The difficulty for the striker is to get close to the goal.” If he is, then he should take his time, keep his cool. His maturity and presence with Benzema and the confidence everyone gave him at Real Madrid helped him. I am satisfied, because today he had the icing on the cake. It was a great season and the best way to finish it was to score in the final. “.

His next goals: “The goal now is to go on vacation and then start the next season. She’s ready. Now I want to enjoy it, it’s been a great season. Unbelievable, I don’t have another word for it. No one expected it – not even I’m optimistic. I didn’t think that like This success will be possible. The Super Cup, the League, the Champions League. I will always be grateful to the players and the club.”

…the call from Real a year ago: “I didn’t expect it. There were phone calls with Real Madrid about other things. Then they asked me if I wanted to come back. Cancellation is impossible. You can’t cancel Real Madrid. Of course, Everton weren’t that happy, but today they will be a little more because we beat.” over their competitors.

… the rocky road to the cup with a handle: “During the matches against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City, I had a lot of doubts about the Champions League title. It was difficult today, but not so much because we didn’t have to catch up. I had my doubts, but the players didn’t. They believed, believed and believed. Today, when we suffered in the first half, we were still in control. We played well tactically. Yes, Liverpool put a lot of pressure on us, often finished the game, but we managed the game well.”
