Carlo Ancelotti: Real Madrid`s dressing room was divided under Jose Mourinho.

Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti revealed that the dressing room had loads of holes to fill up as it was divided when Jose Mourinho was in charge.

Reports has it that the current Chelsea manager had a number of issues with a few senior players at the Bernabeu, with the likes of Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas being one of those.

However, Ancelotti has now admitted there were lots of problems before he took over from Mourinho but it has been different since his arrival, as he found peace all over the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ancelotti told So Foot: “Before I arrived I was aware that there were lots of problems in the dressing room – problems between some players and Mourinho.

“Everything that happened in private would end up in the papers the next day. But when I took charge, everything had returned to calm. I didn’t inherit any tensions.

“Was I responsible for returning peace to the dressing room? No, no. When I arrived there was already a lot of serenity.

“Ever since I arrived, there hasn’t been one fight in the dressing room. I have never had an unmotivated player or any confrontations with players who haven’t played as much as they’d want to.”
