He’s won 1 league title with each: Milan Chelsea PSG Bayern Real Madrid


dalyon

Signs for the club Wins the league Refuses to elaborate further Gets sacked


chandlerbing_stats

I was pretty frustrated with our board when they gave him the sack… we broke league records in his first season and won our first ever domestic double…


MilesAboveTheEarth

I remember your team in his first year. It hurts to say as an Arsenal fan but it was incredibly fun to watch. He really unlocked all the attacking potential of that team and the individual players in it. Id argue that several players had their best seasons. Drogba was insane and not just scoring goals- I swear I remember him drifting onto the wings in some games and creating absolute chaos with his movement and interchanges with Malouda, Anelka, and Kalou. Lampard thrived in all the space they created. I admire managers like Carlo who arent obsessed with one tactic or playing style but find the tactics that their players are comfortable with and can thrive in. He isnt able to do it every single season, but when he hits on the right tactic for his players you get some great teams like his 2009 Chelsea and mid-2000s Milan. He's really gotten the most out of Benz and Vini in this Madrid team too.


ifispeakaminbigtrble

I would say he didn't make the best use of the mid 2000's Milan. 2 CL's and a final are impressive. Their league form was poor for such a stacked team


TempestaEImpeto

Really at the time it was different because the league was truly stacked and not just in the top positions, a deep cup tie really took a lot of strenghts you might not have had in the league.


Autist_of_WallSt

Yeah but so was Juve and Co


vego24

At the time, Juve and Inter at different times had really good squads I would say, and there was also Roma from 2001 to 2004 who had a really competitive squad aswell. The only difference being Milan succeeded in Europe whilst Inter had to wait until 2010 and no one else won anything in Europe.


RuloMercury

Hard to keep a strong league form in mid 2000's Italy to be honest. His first years had pre-Calciopoli Juventus, which was very similar to Real Madrid in terms of stacked individual talent, and his latter years had Mancini's Inter slowly becoming one of the strongest teams in Europe. Not to mention these were the years when Roma and Fiorentina were actually competitive teams.


SerWarlock

Drogba on the wings bossing fullbacks in the air after every goal kick.


yeaweckin

Hindsight is 20/20 but man sacking Carlo for AVB…


AnnieIWillKnow

Did win the Champions League in the end though, somehow, out of the chaos... Made the wrong decision, yet still became European champions. Textbook Chelsea.


EmergencyBatteryPack

I feel cheated.


McDaddySlacks

Only Milan did he have a long term tenure, honestly.


RaveIsKing

And I think the CL wins count as elaborating further, personally


Rickcampbell98

Tbf didn't win the league in his first spell at Real Madrid.


nasryyy

Surprised that he's only won 1 league title with Milan. They had a pretty stacked team during some years of his tenure.


chandlerbing_stats

Yeah it is surprising; he won 2 UCLs tho


fischarcher

And was a Liverpool miracle away from another


ACardAttack

Hasnt that been his MO, better in knock outs than league


keithohara

Will he go for six?


obama_fashion_show

Ancelotti to The New Saints confirmed


JGlover92

They'll be dancing in the streets of Total Network Solutions tonight!


SquatAngry

We'll get him at Barry Town to get a real redemption story going.


_Sylph_

I can see he goes for it after his tenure with us tbh. He celebrated our important league goals like crazy while always looking uninterested in CL matches, so La liga mudt be quite important for him.


kindnesd99

Boring sidequest that got dragged on too long innit


TiberiusCornelius

For him it's a radiant quest he already beat three times


los_blanco_14

Ancelotti to liga NOS


Parshath_

Amorim out. Let's go, Carlo! If Ronaldo is even interested in playing the Champions League next year, he can come too, I suppose.


tbdjdb2

Ronaldo leaving united for sporting to play 6 group stage champions league matches and lose the first knockout tie to Ajax 4 1 on aggregate would be hilarious


DerpSenpai

he did that for Juventus, at least he would not need to live in fricking Manchester


Tifoso89

My man Carlo going for the J-League with Yokohama


Liverpupu

Had he stayed in Everton he could have a chance to win the English championship.


Illum503

As if Everton go down with him instead of Lampard


T_elic

We need a coach next season and are the 6th league so he is welcome to give it a shot with us


[deleted]

Ancelotti to ajax. No rotations just goals.


thalne

at some point that might be a possibility


pickle16

He’ll win the championship with Everton next season. Top 6 leagues done

Don Carlo


Ask_Asensio

Carletto has also become the only Real Madrid manager to conquered all six available trophies in present day. Zizou is missing the cursed Copa del Rey. * La Liga (2022) * Spanish Supercup (2022) * UCL (2014) * Copa del Rey (2014) * UEFA Super Cup (2014) * FIFA Club World Cup (2014)


soporificgaur

False, you forgot about the Conference League


Ask_Asensio

You got me there, both Europa & Conference League actually make my comment worthless. But you got the point :D


cheezus171

Technically as of right now he's only missing EL. Conference is not an available trophy since there hasn't been one given yet.


supreme_maxz

You are technically correct. Which is the best kind of correct


soporificgaur

Yeah, I only mentioned Conference because RM missing it is maximum memeage


Tipsy247

2014 was a good year for him


pure_black99

Seeing he has kicked all Europeans asses, he is Napoleon Bonacarlo


Thomas_Catthew

Ancelotti will do 🤨 for 90 minutes and his teams will win Europe's 5 major league titles.


popeyetheredditman

Rock🤨 🤝 🤨Carlo Found the secret to success.


el_rompe_toyotas-19

Smart one


JackieDRabbit

All but the Portuguese’s


Tifoso89

Do you think he gets proper acknowledgment from fans? I think he has a tough job because after Zidane won 3 CL in a row anything pales in comparison, even though he's been doing a great job this season


ankitm1

He would. I mean he will still get shit for not rotating when Modric starts in midweek and again next weekend against Atletico. People do appreciate what he has done though. Especially with youngsters like Camavinga, Rodrygo, and Vinicius.


wonsis

Fr vinicius was looking like he might be a bad transfer till he came in


Lmao1903

Managers like Carlo will always get criticized even if he somehow wins 4 CLs in the next 4 years. People like managers that “know tactics” and think of crazy genius plans that only real football masterminds can think of instead of results. I guess it is harder to see the positive impact these managers make on a team. I mean I haven’t seen all of their games this season or the previous one but I imagine he is one of the biggest reasons if not the biggest reason for players like Asensio, Vini and Benzema’s brilliant form and also the team’s success in all comps.


austin_zaia

Carlo is great for good players. They all love him. Di Maria-Xabi-Modric midfield was something not all managers would've tried . He also got James-Kroos-Modric work until Modric and James injury and it all went to shit. But, that was proper free flowing football. Vinicius and Rodrygo also seem to improve under him. Even if he gets knocked out vs City, I think he has done a tremendous work with this squad


sofixa11

Vinicius finally has rediscovered his finishing and composure under Carlo, even if nothing else that is a *massive* achievement.


kakarot12310

Tbf, before the 3peat he's the one who get them the La Decima. It's easy to forget he had a first stint here.


kakje666

[deleted]

Finally Everton fans get their answer to why Carlo left


404merrinessnotfound

The fact that he was a manager there for one year should be looked back as a mystical fever dream


[deleted]

Do you know that no fans saw James Rodiguez live because of covid restrictions ?


CaptainGo

Oh shit is that true? Because it's a proper "Everton, that"


BainesofmyExistence

Even the home games that had limited attendance he was injured for


CaptainGo

That's absolutely mad. One of the highest profile players you've had in recent memory and nobody even got to see him in the stadium


BainesofmyExistence

It was an early issue the fans had with Rafa that they’d never get to see James play for Everton in person. That sort of died down after a good early season run, but picked back up again once we started falling into the relegation battle with no creative midfielders and no one who can even take a decent set piece consistently


spacecat17

I saw him in Florida. For a few minutes.


Joshvir262

That win at anfield


[deleted]

Don C might pull a Mourinho and say his greatest achievement was getting 10th with that Everton side


rnzz

It was a weird season, Everton seem to be winning only away games, and found Liverpool when they were losing all of their home games.

Dwade111

steinna615

jtthom

In hindsight, Carlo getting this current Everton team to a top half finish is a greater achievement than any of these trophies.


Live-Organization-87

Absolutely love Don Carlo, proper legend


Tifoso89

Most thought he was done after his Napoli stint, good to see he's doing great


six-strings6

You could argue he was successful at Everton too considering the position we are in now


BaronZbimg

What most people also fail to realise is how big he is in managing to attract top talent. James would have never joined without him. Thiago Silva and Zlatan would have never joined PSG without him.


sbrockLee

For sustained success alone he's a legend, Pep was still playing when he won his first league title with Milan and Mourinho had a whole arc since then. I always respected him as a master tactician and someone who knows how to win big games. Wouldn't mind him trying a stint with the Italy NT.


RjHospe

Atleti fans did a good job in reminding us of Ancelotti's poor league record all season! Thanks guys!

DLRsFrontSeats

I was genuinely lost for words when I found out he wasn't actually from Madrid. The way he goes on and on you'd think he was born in the Wanda's medical area


Deluxe07

Wait, where is he from then?


Santa_Klaus_101

Half Swedish, half Spanish.


Wengers_Grin

Half Spanish is likely something his online persona gained over time. I used to rile him up for fun about being a plastic and in all his lists of excuses he never once mentioned being half Spanish.


Napalm3nema

He is probably from Brussels, as that’s roughly the halfway point between Stockholm and Madrid.

LionelBenzema

Bitch ass rights long ass paragraphs which dont make sense, he legit argued with me that football is not a form of entertainement, and called me plastic becuase I said it was

ReaperX24

I didn't even know he was a celebrity over here until now, but I did notice that he is a complete tool. And I rarely pay any attention to users on Reddit. Seems like he is a very special person.

BabeRyuth

Fucking do it


BCastle18

I’m so happy for him, 2014-15 didn’t end the way we wanted to and he got wrongfully sacked imo but he came back and won La Liga with a few games to spare


Santa_Klaus_101

I've said this before on here as well, but the first half of the 14/15 season was some of the best football we've ever played. Ronaldo had like 20 goals in the first 10 games, Rodriguez and Modric were magical and Benz and Bale played their roles perfectly. But Carlo didn't rotate, Modric and Rodriguez got injured and it went downhill from there.


Alternate_Chinmay7

The 22 game unbeaten run was something else. We were phenomenal till december.


Own_Ad6388

It wasn’t just 22 unbeaten, it was 22 WON in a row


Alternate_Chinmay7

Yeah, I could vaguely emember it being 22 wins in a row but I wasn't sure about it.


kilari7

So many games where we absolutely trashed teams with big scorelines, yet threw it all away in the end. Carlo had no one to blame but himself that season.


BaronZbimg

His Chelsea side beat the Premier League goal record as well, and his Milan teams played some sexy football. When he has the offensive talent, he tends to play beautiful football


[deleted]

He really won all these titles just by saying 🤨


Gweedoke

One of the greatest coaches ever. Dont see anyone reach this feat any time soon.


[deleted]

Also has 3 CLs. All time he is surely top 3.


hornpub1818

Pep could do it if he went to Juventus and PSG.


jMS_44

So happy for him to achieve that. I can't see many managers in the near future even coming close to that. The two who are the closest to this are Pep and Mou, but I doubt if either of them would be going to the 2 remainings leagues for them.


UnnecessaryUmbault

EL Don is not given the recognition that he deserves from the larger football fan base. His AC Milan team was incredible.


Guardax

Club World Cup x2 Champions League x3 Premier League x1 La Liga x1 Serie A x1 Ligue 1 x1 Bundesliga x1 Coppa Italia x1 FA Cup x1 Copa del Rey x1 This is simply one of the best managerial resumes all time


UnnecessaryUmbault

Could be on for another UCL too, where he's absolutely getting the most out of a veteran line up. Terrific manager and by all accounts a very good bloke too. He's been successfully everywhere he's been and you can see from the current state of Everton just how well he was doing there.


Fern-ando

Still cold be 4UCL if luck and Benzema are on his side.


bella_unmarcocasuale

Don't forget that in 2005 at first half he was winning the CL final 3-0...I try to forget it everyday, so difficult😢


McDaddySlacks

When I stir at night I assume it's a subconcious memory of that game. ;(


sbrockLee

One of only 3 coaches to have won 3 CLs and the only one to do it with different teams and over more than 5 years.


DuckMasterABC

That resume is honestly insane.


ankitm1

He made all the creative players work hard, something that never used to happen in those days. No way any other manager accommodates all of them in one team, and/or win titles with that lineup.


alaslipknot

kids on r/soccer :"naa he's shit"


frenciWT

Imagine criticize a coach that started winning after you were even born sometimes. Its funny to see criticism to Ancelotti wo survived 20 years of football as a coach and 30/40 years of football as a player+coach. Ita really difficult to stay compatitive when football is changing so much, really great person and great coach


LionelBenzema

Only oleolecholocholo guy


TheSpartanLion

LEGEND OF THIS SPORT. And there are still plastic kids who have the audacity to shit on him...


konald_roeman

Guy has a magical touch. Heavily underappreciated. Maybe because of his last jobs at Napoli and Everton. But him leaving we can see now how he carried those teams

Wow, that's a boss achievement.

Incredible achievement


RetHD

Carlo completed football platinum trophy.


hem98

It’s a whole career to other managers but it’s just another day playing Football Manager for Don Carlo. He has figured out the game mechanics so now he just set the tactics and “went on vacation”until the end of the season.


jedifolklore

Love Carlo!!! ¡Campeones!

absolutely crucial


Sefean

But he is a hairy fraud according to OleOle who could never compare to the legend, the myth, the beast, Simeone.

As much as the Don gets me worried with his lack of rotations, love the man to death. Got us La Decima and we walked the league this year with him. Maybe even another CL on the cards 👀
