Last week, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti made football history by becoming the first coach to win titles in Europe’s five major leagues after joining a stellar La Liga champions list. The La Liga title was his first during Carlo Ancelotti’s second spell at Real Madrid, and he is now won the Premier League (Chelsea), Serie A (Milan), Ligue 1 (PSG) and Bundesliga as a manager (Bayern Munich) at the previous training station. Real Madrid has won 35 league titles, nine more than Barcelona, making Ancelotti the first manager of his career to win the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and La Liga.
It was a title season at home in Saudi Arabia (where Real Madrid beat Barcelona in extra time in the semi-finals and then beat Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup final). It could also be in the Spanish capital if Carlo Ancelotti manages to topple Pep Guardiola at the Bernabeu in the middle of the week to return to the Champions League final. While Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti Chelsea only beat Manchester United’s Alex Ferguson by a single point in the Premier League in 2010, everyone else was won at a gallop, with Real Madrid’s latest success another bright victory and the long-awaited title of Ancelotti added to his resume. Saturday’s championship made Ancelotti the first manager to win all five major leagues, and Ancelotti’s experience was crucial for keeping Real Madrid on track when things went wrong.
Carlo Ancelotti leads Barcelona by 15 points and is second in the standings with five games remaining before Espanyol. Rodrigo scores twice, and Marco Asensio hits the spot, the perfect finish for substitute Karim Benzema, who helped win the 35th Real Madrid title. The team manager joined his team on the streets of Madrid as they rejoiced in winning the trophy with four games left to play. Carlo Ancelotti smoked a large cigar while enjoying Real Madrid’s Liga title victory with his squad over the weekend. The Blancos had an open-top bus procession following their 4-0 triumph against Espanyol on Saturday, which gave Ancelotti’s side their record-extending 35th Spanish title.
Vinicius Junior posted a photo of Eder Militao, David Alaba, and Rodrygo smiling behind the Italian manager with his Twitter followers. “The BOSS,” the Brazilian captioned the photo. Vinicius then shared a GIF depicting the Italian coach dancing alongside his teammates in the comments section. Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, has stated that he would “probably” retire when he departs the LaLiga winners but that he is willing to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu for a couple of years.
