Ancelotti Knocks Man City Out of Champions League & Then Breaks UEFA Protocol

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, did not adhere to UEFA’s regulations after his team knocked out holders Manchester City from the Champions League. Real Madrid set up a semi-final showdown with Bayern Munich after a thrilling penalty shootout victory against City at the Etihad Stadium.

The first leg between the two sides at the Santiago Bernabeu ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw, setting the stage for an intense second leg. Rodrygo Goes put Real Madrid ahead in the 12th minute, but Kevin De Bruyne equalized for City, making it 4-4 on aggregate. With no further goals in extra time, the match went to penalties, where Real Madrid prevailed 4-3, thanks to costly misses from City’s Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic.

However, it has emerged that Carlo Ancelotti did not participate in the post-match press conference, as required by UEFA rules. Instead, he discussed the game in detail with journalists in the mixed zone. This departure from protocol raised eyebrows among the media and observers.

Ancelotti’s decision to bypass the press conference duty is unusual for a Champions League night. Journalist Richard Martin noted that he had never seen this happen in his 11 years of covering the competition. Ancelotti did conduct interviews with various rights holders, such as TNT Sports and Livescore.

Reflecting on the penalty shootout win, Ancelotti expressed his pride in his team’s resilience and fighting spirit. He stated, “Everyone thought we were dead, but nobody can do that, Real Madrid never dies. Madrid have done it many times. It’s this badge. In the shootout, we were convinced we would qualify.”

Real Madrid will now turn their attention to a crucial El Clasico clash against Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Sunday.
