“We end La Liga with 92 points, which is quite a lot, but not enough to win", he added.
Carlo Ancelotti gave a press conference at the Santiago Bernabéu following the 7-3 goal thrashing of Getafe. The Italian said: “The players have shown a serious and professional attitude right up until the last minute of the season. They have done really well, although there is the sadness of not winning titles. However, the effort was very professional".

"We have often analysed what happened this year in La LIGA. We had important injuries in January and February, such as Kroos, Modric and James. During that period we lost points against Villarreal and Athletic”.

The ban
“I did not enjoy being up in the stands today. I would have liked to end the season on the bench. We did not appeal the ban because it looked like we weren't going to win anything with the appeal. It was unnecessary to appeal. The fans showed affection and the team played seriously. We have ended the season on 92 points, which is quite a lot, but not enough to win".

“In the end, the fans have understood how important Iker is for this club and everything he has done for Madrid. People have finally understood that. Better late than never".

“I am not going to say anything more than I said yesterday. I have to wait. We are going to meet next week to discuss my future at the club. Nobody is in a rush. The club are calmly thinking about what they have to do in order to take the right decision and I am waiting because I am not in a hurry".

The team have done really well, with a very professional effort.

"I am saying that I want to stay, and if the club say no then I will not be happy, but these things happen in football. It wouldn't be the first time. It already happened to me at Juventus and Chelsea. At PSG, I left. I want to coach and it won't be the last time. I still have confidence in my work because I like coaching".

Meeting next week
“I have not spoken to the club. I spoke with José Ángel today, we are going to meet next week, perhaps on Monday or Tuesday, and I think the club will decide then".

Talk with the squad
“I spoke to the players because it was the last game and now they have games with their national teams. I thanked them for their effort this season, what we have been through both good and bad. My future is clear in my head. I either stay here or I take a break for a year".

A year on from La Décima
“That is football and at a demanding club like Real Madrid, it is normal to be questioned after a season that has not ended well. That is part of my job, last year we won La Décima and this year has been different. I will not forget what we did last year, nor what we have done this year. You have to take everything into consideration because it can be used to improve. We have to evaluate what happened this season and try to improve next season".
