Chelsea midfielder Ramires has branded Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti "a special coach".

The Brazilian played under Ancelotti when the Italian was in charge at Stamford Bridge, and in recent days the 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu.

Ramires has added fuel to the speculation by lavishing praise on the experienced boss.

"Ancelotti is a special coach for me, and I really appreciate him," Ancelotti told Marca.

"He helped me a lot when I arrived at Chelsea and he was very important in helping me adapt to my position as a central midfielder. He's a very good coach."

Ramires is currently with the Brazil squad at the World Cup.
