Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he will retire from management after his spell at Real Madrid.
The 63-year-old is widely regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time. He has managed some of the biggest European clubs during his career, including AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
The former Italy international joined Los Blancos last summer after resigning from his position at Everton. He made a huge impact at the Santiago Bernabeu, winning the La Liga title and the Champions League trophy in his debut season.
However, he has now revealed that he wants to walk away from management after his stint at Madrid.
Ancelotti’s current contract at the Spanish giants is set to expire in 2024 but there is no indication yet that he will leave at that point.
“This stage at Real will end my career,” he told Il Messagero. “After Los Blancos, I’ll stop.
“Real is the top of football. It makes sense to put an end to it after this experience.”
One of the greatest managers of all time
Ancelotti has almost 30 years of experience in management. He also has the distinction of being the only manager to win league titles in all of Europe’s five top leagues.
The 63-year-old has been successful everywhere and he is undoubtedly one of the best managers of all time.
He is among the few coaches who can handle a dressing room full of superstars with big egos. This is because he has been a player himself and knows the situation of a professional athlete very well.
The Italian boss played as a midfielder and enjoyed a highly successful career with Roma and AC Milan.
He has always maintained a good relationship with his players who regard him as a friendly and approachable manager.
