Carlo Ancelotti has vowed to bring the most spectacular football to Real Madrid - a club he describes as the most prestigious in the world.
The former Chelsea, Juventus and AC Milan boss signed a three-year contract with Real Madrid following his departure from French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
“This is the most prestigious club in the world," Ancelotti said in his first press conference on Wednesday. “We have to win by playing the most spectacular football because the history and tradition of this club is in playing offensive football.
“We’re going to work hard to play the football that will make the fans happy.”
Ancelotti replaces Jose Mourinho, who returned to his former club Chelsea earlier this summer, while PSG have named Laurent Blanc as Ancelotti's successor.
Ancelotti added: “We have been to the training ground - it’s fantastic.
“Everything that we need is there. I think this is going to be a very good project.
“I have the support of the club, the president and the fans, so I think this will be a very happy season for Real Madrid.”
Ancelotti has won league titles in Italy, France and England as well as two Champions Leagues.
But, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has warned the Italian to succeed at the club despite highest amount of pressure.
Perez said: “Ancelotti has experienced the highest amounts of pressure in the most intense dugouts in the world.
"But he should know that nothing he has experienced will be similar to what awaits him at this club.
“Years ago I said to him ’You will be my coach’, and this day has arrived.
“It was Carlo’s dream to coach Real Madrid and that has been completed.
“The challenge starts here, and here the challenges are always gigantic.”
