During his first years as a football manager, the Ancelotti we’re celebrating today didn’t find it easy. He has had many disappointments. He will never forget the firing by Juventus in 2001, one of the reasons he will never forget..
After the coaching of Reggiana and Parma, Juventus was his last managerial appointment. In February 1999, he was appointed by Juventus. His career began on a good note as manager of Juventus as soon as he helped the club win the Intertoto Cup. They received the trophy by beating Rennes 4-2 in aggregate.
As the season went on, Juventus were knocked out of the UEFA Cup and lost the league on the final day to Lazio. His Juventus team lost the competition by only one point. The fans were angered that they were 5 points in command of the league prior to losing to Lazio with only three games to play.
Carlo Ancelotti got another chance to manage Juventus the next season. In his second season, Ancelotti was fired by Juventus. That season his team was without a trophy. On the last day of the league, they also lost to Roma.
He was dismissed by Juventus in the final league game against Atalanta. His sack was announced during the second half of their last game against Atalanta.
On the coaching side, Ancelotti went on to be the most decorated supervisor in the history of the UEFA Champions League and also won the trophy a record 4 times as a manager. Juventus’s only achievement in the Champions League continues to be the 1 they received in 1995/1996..
