Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti believes the current Real Madrid squad may be the best that he has ever coached.
Lucas Vazquez and Federico Valverde scored in the final 15 minutes to propel Los Blancos to a 3-1 victory over Sevilla, which opened up a six-point lead over Barcelona – who face Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
Victory at Santiago Bernabeu was Madrid’s ninth in 10 LaLiga matches this season, with Ancelotti’s side yet to taste defeat across all competitions – only being held twice overall, against Osasuna and Shakhtar Donetsk.
The valiant late surge left Ancelotti, who has won the Champions League in two separate stints with the club, to declare that the current crop of players may well be the best he has ever overseen in his career.
“I don’t know if it’s the most reliable of my career, but it’s a team I like coaching,” he said in the post-match press conference.
“It’s a team that doesn’t give me problems, that is respectful. And as a quality, it’s one of the best I’ve ever had, if not the best.”
