Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed why he wants Cristiano Ronaldo to be on the bench for Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.
The Bavarians host Los Blancos in the first leg of their quarter-final on Wednesday, and former Real and current Bayern boss Ancelotti has admitted that he would prefer to not see Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale playing in the match.
« I’ve seen a lot of Madrid matches and I think I know a lot about the ‘BBC’, » he said, according to Sportskeeda.
« I think Madrid are on course to win the league and they do very well with BBC. Without them in the team it is not a problem and I think Zidane thinks the same.
« I would prefer it if BBC weren’t to play – I prefer Cristiano to be on the bench, Benzema in the stands and Bale watching at home. »
Ancelotti won four trophies during his time as Real manager, including the coveted Champions League trophy.
