The Italian replaced Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu during the close-season and Ramos has been impressed with the way he is trying to get the team to play.

Ancelotti's side have played more of a passing game than under his predecessor and the defender is confident the Real players have the ability to quickly adapt to the new style.

"We have to forget the Mourinho period and focus on what we want to instill under Ancelotti," said Ramos after Real's 2-1 victory over Everton in the International Champions Cup.

"This style of play is not new to us.

"We have great players with great quality and we must adapt to the system. We have players that make a difference. A great squad."

Iker Casillas started against Everton as the 32-year-old goalkeeper made his first appearance for the club in six months after falling out of favour with Mourinho.

Ramos added: "It was very good, for me it is a novelty to see him behind us in defence.

"To us he remains the best goalkeeper in the world and, in that sense, has our confidence."

Real's victory extended their unbeaten pre-season campaign to five games.
