However, Ancelotti has admitted in press conference that Sagnol, although qualified for the position, was not his first choice. “I tried to convince Philipp Lahm before the end of the season, I’ve also tried to convince Xabi Alonso. They refused… I was looking for a deputy with experience in this club and Sagnol was perfect. He has made very good passages at the head of the team of France Hopes, and Bordeaux. And he knows this club as well as some players like Ribery and Coman”, commented the Italian coach.
Sagnol is a good example in front of him because, in the past, Zinedine Zidane, has been assistant coach to Ancelotti before winning two League champions as Real Madrid coach.
