“There is no ‘Ancelotti style’ because I adapt,” Ancelotti explained. “Against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final, we played a low block with a strong defense. We’ve only played that way once or twice this season.

“Typically, we are more attacking, but I saw that defensive approach as the best way to compete and win that game,” he added.
