Carlo Ancelotti: Real Madrid Boss Uncertain Over Future
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says he does not know if he will be in charge next season after their Champions League semi-final exit.
Real, who won the trophy under Ancelotti last season, lost 3-2 on aggregate to Juventus after a 1-1 second-leg draw at the Bernabeu.
They trail leaders Barcelona by four points in La Liga with two games of the season remaining.
“I don’t know if I will be here next season,” said Ancelotti, 55.
The former Juventus and Chelsea boss said talks about his future would take place at the end of the campaign.
Real, who also won the Copa del Rey last term, have lifted the Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup this season.
If they are to win the league, they must win their final two games against Espanyol and Getafe, and hope Barcelona slip up against Atletico Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna.
“We have 15 days left and two games. After that we will speak with the club,” said Ancelotti.
“There is not much point talking about the future today.”
Real trailed 2-1 going into Wednesday’s semi-final second leg, but Juventus’s Alvaro Morata cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty to send the Italian side – winners in 1985 and 1996 – through.
“We lost the game in the first leg,” said Ancelotti, who tweeted after the match that Real “would be back.”
“Tonight we played at our best. We were unlucky we had lots of opportunities but we were unlucky.”
