Highlights from Ancelotti’s press conference | May 22, 2015
[via Dermot Corrigan & Real Madrid]

- “I am still thinking as Real Madrid coach. After the game, or on Sunday or Monday, we will meet and talk about the future.“
-  “I’m not upset by the speculations of possible new coaches for Real Madrid, this is normal in the football world”.
- “I have always had a great relationship with the President and it will continue that way”.
- "I’m happy to continue, but if not I’m happy with my two years here. If not, I will take my path, and the club their path.”
- “The club has told me that we will talk when the season finishes”.
-  “Whatever happens I will always remember two fantastic years - maybe the happiest moment in Madrid’s history.”
- "I still think that my philosophy, my way of working, is the right way to do things.”
- “I appreciate what the players say, but personal feelings of players should not intervene in a decision the club must make.”
- “I’ve no hurry [on whether he’ll hear about future next week]. When everything is cleared up, then I will go on holidays.”
- “Everybody can have their opinion and it’s a good thing that this happens and also normal in the football world”. 
- "February cost us a lot. Draw with Villarreal, loss in Athletic Bilbao. Close to getting result at Barca. That’s my personal view.”
- "Pogba would be a good signing for any club, as he is one of the best young players in Europe at this moment.”
- “Ronaldo has given his top effort to help the team to try and win titles. We can’t ask more of him”.
- "Iker did not ask me to play final game at Bernabeu. If Iker stays, I believe in the end everyone will be happy.”

At the end of the press conference, Ancelotti receives a round of applause from journalists as he gets up and leaves. 

2015 Michigan Sound Conference


Date: Friday, May 22, 2015 - 10:00am - 8:00pm, 3rd Floor, Main Library

The Detroit Sound Conservancy (DSC) will host its second annual conference on Friday, May 22, 2015 at the Detroit Public Library dedicated to Michigan and Detroit’s musical heritage. The question our presenters will explore is how has Michigan generally, and Detroit in particular, been a leader in the creation of the global modern soundscape? How have Michigan’s spaces of sound (schools, studios, radio stations, clubs, concert venues, cars, etc.) played a key role in how we have come to hear and experience sound and music? What role do they still play today?

This conference connects directly to the DSC’s mission of preserving sounds and telling stories. It also educates the public, helping to disseminate historic designation knowledge and resources not just in Detroit but across Michigan. It is our hope that this “Michigan Sound” conference will encourage and spread a more robust discussion on how we might preserve, protect, and celebrate Michigan’s sonic story.
