Ancelotti calm over Ronaldo contract talks

first_imgReal Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that the club will not have a problem convincing Cristiano Ronaldo to sign a new contract.The Portuguese attacker’s current deal runs out in June 2015 and, amid reports that the likes of Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are ready bid for the 28-year-old, the new Santiago Bernabeu coach has praised the player’s professionalism and cast doubt on any potential transfer.“He’s a phenomenal player, a great professional,” Ancelotti told reporters. “It’s important for the club that a player of his quality shows the utmost professionalism.“It’s also important for the young players to look up to people with this attitude. His contract renewal is not my job, but I do not think it’ll be a problem.”Tito Vilanova resigned as Barcelona boss on Friday due to health problems and Ancelotti has wished his fellow coach a quick and complete recovery.“I want to send a message of support and encouragement to my fellow trainer Tito Vilanova,” the 54-year-old added. “I’m sad about this. He is a fighter who will fight. “I want to tell him that the whole club and squad of Real Madrid – and me personally – are with him. We wish him the best.”last_img
