Fans think Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, 63, has a better first touch than most players

Fans think Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, 63, has a better first touch than most players

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti pulled off a ridiculous touch in their Champions League clash against Chelsea.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti proved he's still got it with some magnificent ball control and skill during their Champions League quarter-final win over Chelsea.

The 64-year-old patrolled the Bernabeu touchline on Wednesday night as Los Blancos dominated for large spells.

Karim Benzema, who has bagged 27 goals in 36 games for club and country this season, opened the scoring for Madrid with a tap in from close range.

And after Ben Chillwell was sent off for a foul on Rodrigo, second-half substitute Marco Asensio sealed what was a relatively straightforward 2-0 win against Frank Lampard's side.

Away from the action and one of the biggest talking points from Wednesday's quarter-final first leg was the audacious first touch of Carlo Ancelotti in the latter stages.

After the ball came to him as a decent speed, the Italian controlled the ball with his right foot before slowing it down with his left.

He then used his upper leg to cushion the ball before kicking it towards Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, who must have been impressed by his manager's touchline technique.

Check out that wonderful moment below.

Here's how fans reacted to the incident.

One said: "Ancelotti with better ball control than Enzo. I've seen enough, sign him up," while another wrote: "Oh my days doing it with his suit and all. I loved that, he was a good footballer and now a perfect coach."

A third commented: "Ancelotti with better touch than most Chelsea players tonight."

A fourth added: "Boehly has offered £200M for Ancelotti after seeing him control the ball on the touchline."

Despite winning by two goals, Ancelotti insists the tie is far from over following a comfortable first leg.

Speaking to BT Sport after the full-time whistle, he said: "Chelsea are a very good team, with very good players. We won 2-0, and we took advantage of this game. It’s not done yet, we still need to go to Stamford Bridge and fight.

“My players understand that there is still another 90 minutes to play. It will be difficult (in the second leg), and we have to be ready.”

Ancelotti also praised Chelsea's interim manager Frank Lampard during the chat with Des Kelly.
