Football: Coach Ancelotti won't be drawn on who Real Madrid's No. 1 goalie will be

GOTHENBURG, Sweden (AFP) - New Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti on Saturday refused to be drawn on who would be his first-choice goalkeeper, saying only he was happy to have in Spain veteran Iker Casillas and Diego Lopez "two good 'keepers".

"I do not know. The most important thing is that we have two good 'keepers with a great deal of experience and great qualities. We need two good goalkeepers for such busy seasons," said the Italian.

Ancelotti has just taken over from Jose Mourinho, who dropped previously unchallenged No. 1 Casillas, 32, last season after he had returned from a serious hand injury, preferring Lopez.

Ancelotti revealed Lopez would be between the sticks for Saturday's friendly against former club Paris Saint-Germain.
