Ancelotti creates Real’s history!0
After Real Madrid’s victory of in the derby against Atletico (2:1), Carlo Ancelotti entered the top five coaches who spent the most matches at the helm of Los Blancos! And the Royal Club itself started the 2022/23 campaign with nine wins in a row.
Ancelotti's coaching career turned out to be surprisingly rich and vibrant. It began in modest Reggiana in 1995, after which Papa Carlo worked fruitfully with Parma, Juventus, Milan, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern, Napoli and Everton. The period from 2001 to 2009 was especially successful for him - being the manager of Rossoneri, Ancelotti led the club to two Champions League Cups.
Seven years after the triumph in the Champions League in 2007, the 63-year-old specialist won the legendary La Decima at Real Madrid. However, due to the “failure” in the next campaign (second place in La Liga with 92 points and 118 goals scored), Ancelotti left the Santiago Bernabeu. Then there was not the most successful period of work in Munich, Naples and Liverpool. And so, Florentino Perez decided to bring Carlo back to Real Madrid.
And he wasn’t wrong. The Italian allenatore immediately pleased the odious boss with two major trophies - the Champions League and the first place in La Liga. Under Ancelotti's leadership, future Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema truly blossomed, and the midfield trio Kroos-Modric-Casemiro found a second youth. Real Madrid, after three years of a small crisis, returned to the cohort of the top clubs in the world.
In just his fourth year at Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti entered the top 5 Los Blancos coaches in terms of matches played. He already has 184. The leader in this indicator is Miguel Munoz (605) - the Italian can no longer catch up with him, but he can try to reach Vicente del Bosque with his 246 games. Real Madrid, even without the departed Casemiro and with the injured Benzema, are rapidly rushing forward. In the league, they got the maximum possible six victories with a total score of 17:6, and in European competition, they defeated Eintracht (2:0), Celtic (3:0) and RB Leipzig (3:0) purely in class.
Carlo Ancelotti says he will no longer be coaching after the end of his contract with Real Madrid in 2024. Well, the Italian has already entered the history of football and became one of the best specialists at the helm of Los Blancos. And this means a lot, because the legendary Real Madrid are the most titled club in the world.
