[Carlo Ancelotti on Steven Gerrard] Obviously he’s one of the best players in the world and I’d like to manage him one time in the future. If you can manage the best players, it’s easier to win. I don’t know him as a person. I think he’s a good man. But the reason I would like to manage him is because I’ve managed a lot of fantastic players, and he’s one of the best players. In Italy, when I played, there were players like [Giancarlo] Antognoni at Fiorentina, Rainer Bonhof in Germany. Today, Gerrard. Full stop. He can be a holding midfielder. He has fantastic shots, passes and skills. He is the complete midfielder

But it was impossible because he was very much linked with Liverpool. We had sounded him out but Gerrard’s bond with Liverpool was unbreakable. I don’t remember exactly what year it was but we did try. Of course, I wanted to pair him up with Pirlo, it was a fantastic combination. Putting Gerrard in midfield with Pirlo. It would have been fantastic

[Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti believes the Juventus and Barcelona stars can replace Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best players on the planet] Paulo Dybala can make history at Juventus over the next ten years. He is unique, you cannot compare him to any other player. Dybala and Neymar can become the heirs of Messi and Ronaldo

[Carlo Ancelotti on learning about bears while living in Canada] They go to sleep in late autumn in a special hibernation den and they don’t wake up until the spring. Their metabolism slows down, their daily patterns change and they just fall asleep! And when they wake again, it’s front page news in the local papers!
