Paul Clement in awe of Real Madrid's Carlo Ancelotti

Real Madrid assistant coach Paul Clement says that he loves working under Carlo Ancelotti.

Real Madrid assistant coach Paul Clement has hailed his boss Carlo Ancelotti.

The Englishman has been working under the Italian tactician for a number of years now, having previously been part of his coaching set-up at Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

"He treats the players like men," he told BBC Sport. "He expects respect in both directions. He also loves to coach on the field - he's very active day to day. Carlo carries out the practices and does the work.

"He's very good in the classroom - with a flip chart, on the tactics board and with the video. He's really good to work for - over time he's given me more and more responsibility.

"The list of top players at Real Madrid is endless. These stars are under an incredible amount of pressure - especially at this club - and what Carlo does well is understand the pressure they are under."

Madrid will take on Villarreal away from home in La Liga on Saturday.
