Ancelotti: We'll Make Bale/CR7 Work

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is confident that he will be able to accommodate Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in the starting XI.

Bale completed a world-record move to Spain this summer from Tottenham Hotspur, but there have been suggestions that the similarities between Ronaldo and Bale's style of play may cause a problem in starting both.

This led to claims that Ronaldo could be used as a central striker, but Ancelotti has quickly dismissed those claims.

"No (Ronaldo will not be used as a striker), I think we’ll be working out a system which will bring out the best characteristics of both players," he told Uefa's official website.

"You need to field the top players where they feel comfortable. Everything is going really well. Real Madrid is a massive club and it is well organised.

"I’m in no doubt at all that it will all work out well for him (Bale). There’s been no problem at all in adapting. The team has changed a little since I came in.

"He’s a great player and he’s young. He wanted nothing more than to come here and play for Real Madrid and I’m sure he’ll do well."
