Carlo Ancelotti is enjoying a renaissance.

Real Madrid Carlo Ancelotti has built team a formidable team. He has discovered and improved talents.

Ancelotti’s Madrid won La Liga with four games to spare and will face Liverpool in the final of the Champions League on May 28th.

Karim Benzema has gone from world-class to the world’s best this season, proving decisive in a simply jaw-dropping manner.

Ancelotti revealed to SiriusXM FC’s how happy he is with Benzema’s form.

“I have difficulty calling Benzema only a centre-forward because he’s a fantastic player that’s playing from the front,”

“He’s not only a top scorer but he also provides assists for his teammates and partakes in the buildup of play. He’s a complete player and for us he’s really important because he scores so many goals. He’s a top, top player and I think he’s the best right now.

“It’s the same with Luka Modric. It doesn’t seem like he’s 36 because he still has the enthusiasm to play, the professionalism to be at the top all the time. They’re both really important for us.

“I think Karim became a leader of the team when Cristiano Ronaldo left because at that time he had more responsibility.

“Ronaldo was a player that was scoring around 50 goals a season and without him Madrid had more difficulties to score goals. Karim took on this responsibility and became more important for the team. But this squad has a lot of leaders.

“There’s not only Karim but also Toni Kroos, Nacho, Marcelo, Modric. All of them are good leaders and this is really important.

“We’ve been able to build a good spirit in the squad and you can see that in all the games we play, even those on the bench. They support the other players and this is the key to success. When you have a good spirit in the squad, when you have players who are able to support the others, it’s really important for success.”
