Former Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, talked about the famous Messi's penalty assist on Sunday against Celta. In statements at Goal.com, the future coach of Bayern Munich considers that in Italy people should have not understood Messi doing this.

  • “I was really surprised. It is a rule, and if you respect the rules, you can do what you want."

  • “If you do this in Spain, it’s OK, but if you do it in Italy, maybe you’ll have more problems. But if you respect the rules, everything is possible.”

Ancelotti also talked about FC Barcelona.

  • “Maybe now Barca are better than Madrid, but you never know what will happen in March or April, when the competition is in the most important moment. You have to be ready in April for the quarter-finals and semi-finals, and May for the final."

  • “Barcelona have a possibility to win Champions League again because they have a fantastic squad, but you never know.”
