Former AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf said that Real Madrid should have patience with manager Carlo Ancelotti man who has endured a difficult start to the life at the Spanish capital. Ancelotti was appointed as the replacement for José Mourinho and he left his job at Paris St Germain in order to take up this job. The arrival of players like Gareth Bale has increased the pressure on Ancelotti even before he began. The start of the season has not been great because Madrid are already five points behind Barcelona in the table.

Seedorf, who played under Ancelotti for several years at Milan, has said that the club should have a lot of faith in the Italian because he is one of the best managers in the world. Ancelotti was one league titles and Champions League titles during his illustrious career both as a player and as a manager. He is one of the very few to hold this record. Seedorf has said that Ancelotti always makes his team played well and win matches, but the transition period from the days of José Mourinho will take some time.

Seedorf has recalled that he worked with Ancelotti for eight years at Milan and he knows him better than most at Madrid.

“Ancelotti always knows what he is doing, give him time. He is a winner and we must be patient so that he can build. They have played some good games, which must give him confidence. He has always managed to have his teams play well and in the end also win. The club have decided to work with him to push the team up a level in Europe and win La Liga, and for that we must give him time,” said the Dutch midfielder, who is currently at Brazilian club Botafogo.
