La Liga — 26 June 2013

Carlo ancelotti is the new Real Madrid bossSpanish giants Real Madrid have appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new boss on a three-year-contract.

The former-PSG boss had been the favourite to succeed Jose Mourinho

at the Bernabeu, since the Portuguese boss was linked with a return to Chelsea and the move has now been rubber-stamped.

PSG have replaced Ancelotti with former-French national team boss Laurent Blanc, who has a two-year deal at the Parc de Princes.


Carlo Ancelotti is one of the most successful bosses the European game has seen in recent history. The Italian has won league titles in Italy with AC Milan, at Chelsea in England and last season helped PSG to their first French league title in nearly two decades.


Ancelotti, rather like Real Madrid has a big affinity with the European Cup. The 54-year-old has won Europe’s elite competition as a player and coach with Italian goliaths AC Milan. There is a great passion for the Champions League in the Spanish capital that has almost become an obsession.

Ancelotti understands the passion for the Champions League, considering his association with the prestigious tournament. He will be looking to collect Real’s tenth European Cup in his tenure in the Spanish capital.


Ancelotti faces a major challenge at Real, after Los Blancos finished 15 points behind bitter-rivals Barcelona in La Liga last season. The Spanish champions should be even stronger next season, after the Catalans beat Real to the signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar from Santos.


Carlo Ancelotti is one of the few bosses in football today that is capable of taking on such a big task as managing Real Madrid. Given the time I am sure he can help Real Madrid get closer to rivals Barcelona.

However, Los Blancos bosses are not usually given that much time to prove themselves, so the Italian will have to make a difference very quickly or he could be following in the footsteps of a host of big names bosses that have been shown the door by Real.

Will Carlo Ancelotti be a success in the Spanish capital?
