Real Madrid brought La Liga’s title chase to a close on Saturday with a 4-0 victory over Espanyol, ensuring that Carlo Ancelotti was the very first manager in history to win all of Europe’s top five leagues..
The Italian coach didn’t win a league title in his previous spell at Santiago Bernabeu, but in his very first season back in charge he led them to national glory.
After failing to win Serie a in his home country Italy throughout his formative years as a supervisor with Reggiana, Juventus and Parma, Ancelotti ultimately seized his first league title with Ac Milan in 2004 with a record – breaking eighty two points from 34 matches.
In 2009, Ancelotti quit Milan having won only that title, and moved to Chelsea the same summer. The Blues won the Premier League within his first season at the club, turning out to be the very first team in the English top flight to break the 100-goal barrier since Tottenham in 1962/63..
Chelsea radical Ancelotti was fired at the conclusion of his 2nd season after failing to meet the expectations of the first season, while he was a popular figure in the dressing room.
After that he spent 6 weeks without work prior to turning into the brand new manager of Paris Saint Germain, and even though he was not able to save their faltering 2011/12 title challenge, he did guide them to Ligue 1 glory the following season before Real Madrid came calling for the very first time..
Ancelotti turned out to be the manager to ultimately earn Real Madrid their 10th Champions League -‘ La Decima’ – however he was pipped to La Liga by Atletico Madrid that season, then Barcelona before leaving Spain in 2015.
Ancelotti arrived at Bayern Munich in 2016 following a season out of the game and soared to the Bundesliga title in his only complete season in Bavaria.
Middling spells with Everton and Napoli followed before Ancelotti was hired to replace ex assistant coach as well as player Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu and has now secured his very first domestic title in 5 years and written his name into history as the very first manager to finish the best set of the European football league titles..
