The Italian tactician was sacked by Perez in 2015, despite winning the UEFA Champions League and Copa Del Rey in the previous season.

However, Ancelloti has now taken over at the Bundesliga champions and he believes Bayern president  Franz Beckenbauer has better understanding of football than Perez.

"What's the difference between Bayern and Real Madrid? They're quite similar as clubs, maybe the difference between them is that one is ran by an ex-footballer and he understands what happens better," Ancelotti told L'Equipe.

The former AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain manager also had a few good words to say about Zinedine Zidane.

"He has a lot of charisma and the players respect him. I saw it when he was my assistant and I think that's the key," he added. 

"The players had problems with [Rafael] Benitez and when Zizou came in everything changed. The players are all fully behind him."
