Carlo Ancelotti after winning his fourth Champions League: 'I'm the record man'

Carlo Ancelotti wrote his name in gold letters in the history books of soccer, he is the first coach in the history of the Champions League to win it four times.

Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0 with goals from Vinicius Jr, the Brazilian and Belgian Thibaut Courtois, who made spectacular saves. The white team lifted its 14th Champions League, which makes it the most winning team in the tournament.

The Italian was very happy, he could not believe what was happening in France

"I can't believe I have four Champions League titles. We suffered, but the team's commitment was perfect. We are very happy because we finished the season very well. Alaba, Militao and Mendy have been very good. The plan went well. Courtois has had a fantastic season."

"It was the most difficult cup I've ever won. It helped us that nobody thought it was winnable, that gave the team commitment, confidence, fight and we created a good atmosphere, added to the individual quality of the players we have."

"We have suffered a lot from the round of 16 until today, we have suffered a lot.

Liverpool have not lost many games this year, we beat them in a great game. It is easier to win the Champions League with Madrid than with another team.

The happiness is more because I have returned to Madrid we have had a spectacular season, I will never stop thanking the president and the players.

I am left with the good atmosphere we have around us, it is complicated and difficult to create this atmosphere, there is ego in the locker room, I am left with the ease of coaching this team.

I keep the tranquility of the locker room, I was calm when the game was delayed, I was the most nervous one, I went into my room so that the players could not see me, they were very calm, very calm. That confidence helps."

Ancelotti is already thinking about next season

"After four years, I had difficulties fighting for titles, returning to Madrid was a great success. At the moment I don't think about the titles I won, I think about the happiness of the fans and the players.

Now I'm going on vacation and then start thinking about next season, enjoy this moment, it has been an incredible season. I didn't think we could have three competitions, Super Cup, LaLiga and Champions League.

During the matches there were many doubts, today the game was difficult,

I had some doubts, but the players had no doubts. We suffered in the first half, but we had it under control. We managed the game very well." He said.
