Ancelotti: La Decima my responsibility

Carlo Ancelotti said finally delivering the long awaited 'decima' - tenth European Cup - was his clear objective at his presentation as Real Madrid's new coach on Wednesday afternoon.

• Ancelotti: I'm no peacemaker
• Blog: Real hopes for Ancelotti
• Blog: A beautiful friendship?
• Delaney: Power to the president

Ancelotti, who won the trophy as both a player and coach at AC Milan, was made aware of his responsibility when given a tour of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu's glittering trophy room by Blancos president Florentino Perez before he met journalists in the nearby press facility.

The Italian, who it was confirmed has full charge of all footballing matters at Madrid, said that taking on such a big task was not a problem for him, but a motivation.

"We all know that La Decima is the big objective, for the club, for everyone," Ancelotti said. "I have that ambition and that responsibility, that is not a problem for me. Every year the coach has a responsibility. To win la decima is such a big motivation."

Madrid's last Champions League title came in 2002, when Zinedine Zidane volleyed in a memorable winning goal over Bayer Leverkusen. Ancelotti confirmed that the Frenchman would be one of his assistant's next season, without quite clarifying the exact role he would play.

"Zidane will be on the bench, the only pity is he cannot play," the new boss joked. "Zizou was a fantastic player, everybody knows him, now he has decided to be a coach. I am very happy to work at his side. He will be a very good assistant, along with my usual assistant Paul Clement."

Ancelotti was also careful to be nice to his former employers Paris Saint-Germain, stressing repeatedly that both he and Madrid retained a friendly relationship with the French club despite the month-long saga as PSG's Qatari owners first refused to release him, then struggled to find a suitable replacement.

"PSG is now the past," he said. "I want to thank everyone in Paris for the experience I had there, but that is over now. I want to wish luck to everyone there, including [the French club's new coach] Laurent Blanc."

Asked about whether he would play a different style of football than his own predecessor at the Bernabeu, Jose Mourinho, Ancelotti said that a club of Madrid's 'prestige' was always tasked with playing an exciting "spectacular" game.

"The most prestigious club in the world needs to win, playing spectacular football, because the history and tradition of this club is to play offensively, spectacularly, and we are going to work to play football that can give happiness to the fans," the former Chelsea boss said. "This team has lots of quality in attack, and in midfield too. I do not think it will be difficult organise an attacking style."
