“We met when I was in Germany,” Ancelotti told Carlo Pellegatti during an Instagram Live video. “I don’t know him [Rangnick] personally, but from what I’ve read he loved [Arrigo] Sacchi’s Milan.
“I don’t know his methods either.
“Milan should be afraid of bad coaches, not foreign ones. Fortunately they’ve picked several good ones. The fortunes of a coach are tied to how solid a club is.”
“It doesn’t surprise me that he is still playing,” he added. “I don’t know how much longer he will keep playing.
“From a character standpoint, I liked him. He’s selfless. He was very attentive to what was going on with the squad, which is very important for a coach.”
