Watch Carlo Ancelotti send farewell message to Real Madrid fans

Good-bye, Carlo.

Carlo Ancelotti is still in Madrid after being fired by Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez. The main reason for that is that AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani wants to recruit him and join AC Milan for the 2015-2016 season.

Yesterday, when asked to send a message to Real Madrid fans, Ancelotti said an encouraging "Hala Madrid" in a video recorded by Bernabéu Digital. Ancelotti has become a fan of this club and some reports even say that he will be a season ticket holder next year, given that he will live in the Spanish capital if he finally takes a year off and decides not to sign for AC Milan.

It wasn't easy for Florentino Pérez to sack Ancelotti. The President and the Italian manager had a very good relationship, but Ancelotti's mistakes and Real's failure this season forced him to make that call. Now, Rafa Benítez will take over as Real Madrid's coach. Will he be able to succeed and improve Ancelotti's achievements?
