Ancelotti: Real Madrid don't have a playing style because we don't want to have one

Carlo Ancelotti said that he didn't want to go involved with Atletico Madrid CEO Gil Marin's comments and made a very interesting comment for those who think that Real Madrid lack a style of play.

The main concern for Ancelotti, however, is the upcoming match against Real Sociedad.

"Real [Sociedad] are playing very well and have a good dynamic," he said in a press conference.

"We have to improve in the first half. After what happened against Atleti, it's important to play a complete game offensively and defensively."

Then he gave his reflections on the Copa del Rey quarter final against Atletico Madrid that took place on Thursday.

"It was a competitive, even match," he said. "I think we deserved to win on our side. The rest is something I'm not going to talk about.

"The only system I know is the one I will use tomorrow."

About Gil Marin's comments, he remained coy.

"I haven't read [his comments], but I heard something. I don't want to talk about it. All I can say is that my character is to respect all opinions," he said.

He also responded to those who say the team doesn't have a style of play.

"They also said it last year," he stated. "We have the [quality of] football. Sometimes we do it well and sometimes less well.

"Madrid do not have a clear identity, for the simple reason that we don't want to have one.

"We are a team that knows how to do many things, not just one. And I like that."

He did, however, clarify his favourite formation.

"The 4-2-3-1 is a system that I like, especially defensively. Sometimes Modric has played there as a playmaker, sometimes Asensio, sometimes Rodrygo. He likes it, it's ideal to play behind the striker. We are thinking about it. In many games we've played like that," he said.
