Ancelotti on players whose contracts are expiring
"We are not worried. Until June 1st it is a secondary issue. We are thinking about winning the Champions League."

Ancelotti on Arda Güler
"It’s clear that we are very fond of the young players... the squad, the staff... he has a gift for scoring goals, because the ball is in love with Arda Güler."

"Nothing, he got stamped on. To get a good dynamic, we need minutes for those who haven’t played. And I’m convinced that we’ll be at our best on June 1st."

"The situation is clear. We have told him. In the two remaining matches, one will be played by Andriy and the other by Thibaut."

"No. I’m going to rest like the players. Next week it’s going to be physical and the following week it’s going to be tactical work."
