Ancelotti brands himself ‘lucky’ to have coached Milan: “I am above all linked to moments”

By Oliver Fisher -

Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that he feels lucky to have been able to coach two clubs like AC Milan and Real Madrid in his career, and to win trophies with each.

It would be fair to say that Ancelotti has tasted success in his career, both as a player and a manager. Regarded as one of the greatest coaches of all time, he has won the Champions League four times with two of them coming at Milan.

He is also the first and only one to have managed teams in five Champions League finals, while he won the European Cup as a player with the Rossoneri in 1989 and 1990. He is also the first and only manager ever to have won league titles in all of Europe’s ‘top five’ leagues.

Although he has been gone a while now, ‘Don Carlo’ has often expressed his love and gratitude towards Milan, such as last September when he revealed he would be watching a game against Inter with his red and black shirt on.

Ancelotti has just inaugurated a ‘bed and breakfast’ hotel in the province of Parma and the coach was joined by Marco Nosotti, a correspondent for Sky, who asked him some questions about his journey in football. PianetaMilan relayed his comments.

What can you tell us about the rumours of you joining Brazil?

“It’s very good in Madrid.”

And Mbappe joining Real Madrid?

“The group is important and Real is a great group.”

What are the achievements in your career that stand out?

“I am above all linked to moments rather than things. After the Champions League wins in 2003 and 2007 I slept here in Parma.”

You will meet Pep Guardiola again in the Champions League…

“Yes, we see each other often, but this is good, it means we are healthy.”

What is your secret?

“Just the pleasure of doing something you like, a passion that continues.”

Do you still follow Italian football?

“I’m Italian, I follow all football, Italian and international.”

You have coached two huge clubs in Milan and Real Madrid…

“They are two historic clubs that have made football history in Europe. The teams that have won the most Champions League titles are Milan and Real Madrid. I was lucky enough to coach them both.”

What is happiness for you?

“For me happiness is tranquility, peace.”
