Ancelotti: We Only Need 5 Minutes

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says that his side only needs five minutes of good football to decide a game.

Los Blancos needed to fight back twice against Levante on Saturday with Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Morata netting before a late Cristiano Ronaldo winner decided matters in stoppage time.

Ancelotti admits that it was not the best performance from his side, but feels that they deserved to win the game on the day.

"Our first half wasn’t too good but the second half turned out differently," Ancelotti told reporters after the match. "When Real Madrid play well, we can win a match in five minutes.

"It was important for us to get a victory. We didn’t play fantastic football but we did deserve to win. And when you have players who battle and never give in, there’s always a chance to improve.

"The players made a huge sacrifice and never surrendered."

Ancelotti also had kind words for youngsters Morata and Jese Rodriguez, adding: "Morata scored and Jese looked dangerous. They both showed great enthusiasm when they came on."
