Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says that building a winning team takes time - not big-money signings. The Spanish giants brought in Gareth Bale for a world record €100 million last term and have since won the Copa del Rey. They have also reached the Champions League final but look unlikely to win La Liga thanks to a 1-1 draw at Valladolid this week and Ancelotti says that patience, not money, is the key to success. "Building a team and adapting to the characteristics of the players takes a long time," he said at the launch of a video game in Madrid. "It's not natural - you have to work at it. It's necessary to know the players well and adapt them. No system guarantees you victory - all of them are valid. "The answer is not always to sign the best. I wouldn't sign anyone because I have the players I like. "The most important thing is to go for the same objective, to value Madrid more than anything else in this case. You win as a team, not as individuals."
