Real Madrid vs Chelsea My 20 years experience over Lampard irrelevant – Ancelotti. Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has said the “20 years experience” he has over his former player Frank Lampard who is now Chelsea caretaker manager, will count for nothing on Wednesday.
The two men are preparing to face off in the Champions League quarter-finals’ first leg.
Madrid hosts Chelsea at the Bernabeu in Lampard’s second game back in charge, after he replaced Graham Potter on a short-term deal.
“I’m 63 and he’s 44, so I have 20 more years experience than him, but that won’t change what happens in the game,” Ancelotti said in his pre-match news conference.
“He knows what can happen in these games and how to prepare a team for these games. Experience doesn’t mean much. He knows a lot of the players and he’ll do well for sure.”
