“This chapter will conclude my career” – Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti says that his illustrious managerial career will come to an end when his current spell at Real Madrid is over. The veteran Italian boss led the Spanish giants to a Champions League and La Liga double last season after leaving Everton. With the win last season, the Italian has taken his tally to a record four triumphs of Europe’s biggest club competition, and he intends to call it quits while he’s at the top of the game. 

Heading into the new La Liga campaign, Ancelotti said this will be the final job of his illustrious career.

“This chapter at Real will conclude my career. I will stop after I leave the Blancos,” the Italian told II Messaggero, an Italian newspaper

“Real represents the very top of football. It makes sense to bow out after this experience.”

Ancelotti is one of the most successful managers of all time, having won league titles in all five of Europe’s major leagues and a record four Champions League crowns – two with Real and two with AC Milan.

Last season, his side’s success was largely thanks to the exploits of 44-goal striker Karim Benzema, who Ancelotti believes should win the Ballon d’Or after he was named UEFA best player of the year 

“He deserves it, he had an extraordinary season,” Ancelotti said.

The Italian has managed some of the biggest clubs in the world, winning a litany of league titles, domestic cups and European honours during spells with AC Milan, Chelsea, PSG, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
