Home » Ancelotti and the European Super Cup: «Eintracht Frankfurt takes advantage»

With less than a week to go before the UEFA Super Cup, Carlo Ancelotti gave an interview to the official UEFA website. Asked about the possible favoritism of Real Madrid against Eintracht Frankfurt, the Italian coach put the onus on the German emblem, winner of the Europa League.

“Eintracht Frankfurt takes the lead, because they start the season before us [they beat Magdeburg in the Cup and will face Bayern in the first round of the Bundesliga], but we will play to win, looking to the future and not backwards. Last year’s victories reinforced our belief, but now we have to look ahead, we are going to fight for six titles this season and we want to fight for all of them”, he shot.

As for the changes in the squad, Carlo Ancelotti was satisfied with the additions of Tchouaméni and Rudiger.

“We have signed two players who are among the best in the world in their positions. They add physical capacity and technical quality to the team. They will go through a period of adaptation, but they are two good signings. Obviously we have not forgotten Marcelo, Iisco and Bale, who have helped the club to make history in recent years, but I hope that the new ones will help to repeat the feats they have achieved”, he concluded.
