- On Saturday he became the first coach to win the five major leagues and this Wednesday the first to direct five Champions League finals.
A big week for Real Madrid and especially for his coach, Carlo Ancelotti, who in just a few days has added two historical records to his extensive track record. If last Saturday he became, after being mathematically certified against Espanyol, the first coach capable of conquering the five major European leagues, this Wednesday he has also managed to be the first to direct five Champions League finals. It will be measured on May 28 in Paris against another coach who also has a lot of experience in this type of match. For Jürgen Klopp, who arrives with Liverpool, it will be the fourth.
Ancelotti won his first ‘scudetto’ with Milan in 2004 in Italy. With Chelsea he debuted in the Premier in 2010, doing the same with PSG in France in 2013. With Bayern Munich, he won the Bundesliga in 2017, while by 2022 the one achieved with Real Madrid will remain.
As for the Champions League finals and before the current one, the Italian coach was champion with Milan in 2003 and 2007 against Juventus (on penalties) and Liverpool (2-1), he also won 2014 final with Real Madrid against Atlético de Madrid (4-1 in extra time) and only lost in 2005 against Liverpool on penalties after seeing how the English came back from 3-0.
Ancelotti has no fewer than 22 titles to his name: 3 Champions Leagues, 2 Club World Cups, 3 European Super Cups, 1 Intertoto, 1 Spanish League, 1 English League, 1 Italian League, 1 French League, 1 of Germany, 1 King’s Cup, 1 England Cup, 1 Italian Cup, 1 Spanish Super Cup, 1 England Super Cup, 1 Italian Super Cup, and 2 German Super Cups.
