Ancelotti Reacts To Boehly’s Dressing Room Talk

The Real boss is set to face his former club once again in midweek in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter final clash, having won the first leg 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.Ancelotti will return to Stamford Bridge with his former side Chelsea in the midst of somewhat of a crisis. Caretaker manager Frank Lampard has, so far, failed to steady the ship at the Blues since taking over from the recently-sacked Graham Potter, losing all three of his games in charge thus far.Perhaps the most damning of these defeats came at the weekend at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion, who thoroughly outplayed Chelsea in an eventual 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

After the defeat, Boehly along with owners Behdad Eghbali and Hansjorg Wyss are believed to have gone into the dressing room, with Boehly in particular laying into the players for their recent performances.When asked about Boehly’s dressing room talk during his press conference, Ancelotti stated that he believed it was a ‘good move’ for the new owner to make.

“From the owners it could be an important motivation for the players,” he said. “The Chelsea moment is not a good moment, I think to have the support of the club could inspire the players to play better.

“I think it is a good move to do this and if the clubs want to come and talk to the players I have no problem, absolutely.If he [Madrid’s president] wants to talk to me every game I am pleased because I think the owner has the right to know what are the decisions of the managers, so it is the right of the club to know what the manager does.”
