Real Madrid right-back Alvaro Arbeloa has backed coach Rafael Benitez to prove successful during his time in charge of the Spanish giants.
Benitez previously signed Arbeloa for Liverpool in 2007, and the 32-year-old is convinced that Real will improve collectively and individually as a result of his methods.
"Once it became known that he was going to return, everyone started asking me about [Benitez]," he told the Madrid official website.
"Rafa is a very methodical coach, a very hard worker, highly demanding and I assure you that we are going to become better players."
The Blancos, who won the Champions League under Ancelotti in 2014, have not won a Liga title since the 2011-12 campaign.
