Ancelotti delighted to coach Ronaldo

New Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says he cannot wait to guide Cristiano Ronaldo through next season, diminishing speculation the forward will leave for Manchester United in the summer.

Ancelotti was unveiled to the Madrid press on Wednesday, and was quick to put his stamp on the club.

The Italian was also asked his opinion on Ronaldo, who he can now add to the list of superstars he has managed in previous roles at the likes of Chelsea, Juventus, Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

"My opinion is easy. Ronaldo's a fantastic, marvellous player," Ancelotti explained.

"It's an honour to coach a player like Ronaldo like it was to coach Zidane.

"Ronaldo was not on the list of players like Brazilian Ronaldo, Zidane and Ronaldinho that I coached.

"He will be on the list of players I coached now and I am so happy for that."

Ronaldo's future at the club, though, was not discussed in detail, with Ancelotti opting not to speak of potential transfers in or out of the Bernabeu in his opening press conference.
