Carlo Ancelotti praises Gerardo Martino, Diego Simeone

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti praises fellow La Liga managers Gerardo Martino and Diego Simeone.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has praised fellow La Liga managers Gerardo Martino and Diego Simeone.

Martino's Barcelona and Simeone's Atletico Madrid are locked in a three-way challenge for the title with Los Blancos this season, with just three points separating the trio with 13 games remaining.

"Martino is doing very well at Barcelona. I like the way he speaks, always calm, he reminds me a lot of myself, he doesn't go looking for controversy and does the best for his team," he told Canal Plus.

"Atletico is like Simeone was as a player, a solid team that gives their all every game and everyone united."

Real travel to Atletico at the weekend.
