Sergio Ramos has taken the time to praise Carlo Ancelotti and believes the Real Madrid coach is one of the best trainers in the world.
The Italian replaced Jose Mourinho at the helm at the Santiago Bernabeu side this summer and Ramos is confident that the former PSG boss will succeed at the Primera Division giants.
"He’s one of the best in the world and we’re going to try to enjoy it. Having highly experienced coaches is a very positive thing," the defender said at a press conference.
"You learn a lot from him and hopefully he can bring titles. The important thing is that we understand perfectly what he teaches us and have a good year from there.
"It's a tremendous joy to be here and we hope he has a hard time choosing the team because competition is very important in great teams."
Ramos went on to discuss the arrival of Isco at Madrid and feels the former Malaga man is a valuable addition to the team.
"It’s good that young players with ambition and a desire to win trophies are in the squad. He made a difference in his former team. He’s good news for the team and can add a lot of great things.
"Competition is always good and we have to expect things from our team-mates. We all want to play and the best players should be the ones that do."
He also had his say on Pepe's situation and is hopeful that the Portugal international will remain at Madrid, despite losing his place to Rafael Varane last season before falling out with Mourinho.
"He’s always been a guarantee on the pitch and is one of the best in the world. It would be wonderful if he continues here, but everyone is free to decide their future," Ramos added.
"He continues to form part of this team, which is more or less complete in defence."
