Sacchi on Ancelotti and Bale

Arrigo Sacchi is glad Real Madrid finally got Carlo Ancelotti and reveals why they are so eager for Gareth Bale.

“Florentino Perez has wanted to sign Ancelotti for a long time,” he told Meridiano. “When I was at Madrid, he was on everyone’s mind.

“Madrid is a historic club – the most famous in the world. I just hope he does well because he is one of the best Coaches in the world.

“Carlo has a great character, is a good person and a good Coach.”

Former Italy tactician Sacchi also commented on the reported €100m offer for Tottenham and Wales talent Bale.

“I think the Bale signing would be a commercial operation. Madrid have always wanted to sign a British player because of sponsorship.”
