WHAT THEY SAID: When asked about his future at Real Madrid, Ancelotti told reporters: "It's an evaluation that the club has to make, not me. I've said many times that I'd stay here for life, but I think that's impossible. It's a decision the club will take at the end of the season, whatever happens."

He added, on Los Blancos' chances of winning something this season: "Rules change! And unwritten rules too. But I'm convinced that we'll win something this season, so that's that."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Los Blancos are currently nine points behind Barcelona in La Liga while they are trailing 1-0 against their arch-rivals from the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final. In the Champions League, they will face Chelsea in the last-eight.
