The head of the coaching staff of Valencia, Gennaro Gattuso, said that the Italian Carlo Ancelotti is the best football coach in the world, Spanish “As” reports.
The 44-year-old coach took over Valencia in June this year, and before that he managed Napoli, Milan, Pisa, Ofi, Palermo and Sion.
“Carlo Ancelotti always knows how to get into the players’ heads. It seems simple, but it’s not. When I talk to a 20-year-old player, I don’t have to think about my career or what I’ve done. I have to figure out how to get into his head. I have gotten a lot better in the last three years. However, you have to know who you have in front of you. I have a son and a daughter and I talk to them in a different way. It’s the same with football players. For this reason, regardless of tactics and other things, the best coach in the world is Karlo Ancelotti. It’s incredible how he got into the heads of players from four generations,” Gattuso claims.
The coach of Valencia also remembered his playing career.
“My football style changed at the age of 27, 28 when I played for Milan against Spanish clubs. Football is completely different now than when I played. It is clear that it is better to be a player than a coach. You don’t have a life when you live football, like me. I have to thank my wife, I don’t know why she hasn’t left me yet. When I became a coach, I called Ancelotti and asked him how he manages it, because it’s very difficult for me. I start work at 8:30 a.m. and come home at 7 p.m. And after that I think about football. I have to change, because it’s not good to think about football at 6:19 p.m.,” said the coach of Valencia.
