The ex-Everton chief was unveiled after six years away after predecessor Zinedine Zidane quit last week.
And straight away Ancelotti offered hope to under-fire big names like skipper Sergio Ramos, playmaker Isco and left-back Marcelo.
But although admitting he “loved” Cristiano Ronaldo, he refused to speak publicly about bidding to re-sign the Juventus superstar, 36.
Ancelotti said: “I’ve just arrived, have to talk about Ramos with the club in the next few days.
“I have a lot of love still for Gareth Bale, Isco, Marcelo… they will have motivation to show they can still play for Real Madrid.
