Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern Munich and Everton spells were lamented by players and pundits, but now he’s the Don of European football with Real Madrid and ready to end Liverpool’s quadruple dream

Much of recent history has seen football fans fretting over who’s the best out of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho but along comes Carlo Ancelotti to blow them out of the water.

The Italian seemed to be on a downward trend after following up Champions League triumph with Real Madrid in 2014 with an underwhelming stint at Bayern Munich which resulted in an early sacking.

Now though, he’s back at the very top of the game

European royalty with his victories as a manager and player, Ancelotti then seemed content to swap Champions League for Europa League with stints at Napoli and Everton, but he’s now returned to the top table with stunning results.

A second lease of life in Madrid has resulted in a first LaLiga title, as well as a record fifth Champions League final – where victory would see him in a pantheon of his own.

However, it’s been far from plain sailing for the 62-year-old since his last final appearance with Madrid in 2014, with the following years seeing his reputation at the top level written off.

Ancelotti arrived in Bavaria in 2016 as hot property following the news of Guardiola’s move to Manchester City, but the Spaniard turned out to be an impossible act to follow.

The Italian was dismissed by Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rumenigge after less than two seasons at the helm, with the former club chief even confirming Ancelotti had lost the dressing room.

“Ancelotti had five players against him,” Rumenigge said.

The City boss was a tough act to follow, but now Ancelotti has given him one of his most humbling defeats

“Since the start of the season, the performance of the team has not met our expectations, and the match in Paris [Saint-Germain] has shown clearly that we had to make conclusions.”

Multiple reports in Germany claimed the intensity and tactical nature of training had dropped off, with Arjen Robben refusing to deny the stories players wanted Ancelotti sacked.

But whatever was missing in Munich, clearly isn’t missing in Madrid, with Ancelotti getting the better of Guardiola, the man who had inadvertently sent his career on a downward spiral.

Elsewhere little success or improvements were seen at both Napoli and Everton with the latter spell receiving even more criticism, this time from talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan, among others.

And things had hardly been any better in Napoli

After Ancelotti’s move to Madrid, Jordan said: “The furore and the interest at the beginning of the season and how it was all coming together and then they finished tenth in the league.

“We’re talking about style over substance. I didn’t think the direction of travel that Ancelotti was on was indicative of his career, and there were a lot of reasons, predominantly financially, why he found himself at Everton.

“They finished tenth in the league and I really don’t think Ancelotti was pulling up many trees.

Ancelotti is now in a completely different place after having his management career derided

“I don’t think, when you look at it over the 18 months, this is much of a loss, because he hasn’t brought anything, what’s he brought? 

“When it comes down to it, Thomas Tuchel walks into Chelsea and wins a Champions League, gets them to a cup final, and finishes fourth in the league. Carlo Ancelotti spends 18 months taking Everton back to where they started.”

Now though, much like his touchline rival in Paris, Jurgen Klopp, Ancelotti has turned doubters into believers and instead of heading to retirement he’s now on the precipice of history.
