Carlo Ancelotti: My reign at PSG later became frustrating.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said that his reign at Paris Saint-Germain became frustrating because there were too many shouting matches and they no longer believed in him.

During the Italians reign at PSG, he guided the Ligue 1 side to winning their league title in his second season [Ancelotti`s first full season] in charge. The club also reached the quarter-final of the Champions League, where they lost to Barcelona on the away goals rule before Ancelotti left for Madrid.

However Ancelotti has now admitted that those in control behind the scenes at PSG lost faith in him and he became frustrated with club's desire to win the Champions League immediately.

The Real Madrid boss told So Foot: "At the end of the second season, I started to convince myself that something was wrong at PSG.

"We were leading the championship, but I was not convinced that the work we were doing was right.

"In any case, I had such a complicated relationship with the club's leaders. They no longer believed in me, they wanted immediate results.

"They were eager for instant success, but PSG need to work in the medium and long term. The club should not yet think about winning the Champions League.

"When I was there, every game we lost resulted in shouting matches."
