Ramos delighted with Ancelotti appointment

The 27-year-old is looking forward to working with the Italian after he signed a three-year deal in the Spanish capital and talked up a potential move for Isco.
Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is delighted with the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as the club's new head coach.

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss was officially confirmed as Jose Mourinho's replacement at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday after signing a three-year deal with the capital club, and Ramos believes the Italian's exemplary record shows exactly why he is the right man for the job.

"I am very pleased that Carlo Ancelotti has joined Madrid," Ramos told AS. "I can only speak well of him and look forward to working with him.

"You have to recognize what Ancelotti has achieved in the game, managing some of the best clubs in Europe. He has achieved this because he brings great values with him, and knows how to get the best out of every player he works with."

Meanwhile, Spain starlet Isco appears to be nearing ever-closer to a move to Madrid from Malaga, and Ramos believes his young compatriot would make a fine addition to the squad.

"He is a great player who would be welcomed to Madrid if he was to move here," the 27-year-old added.
