Carlo Ancelotti Bayern
On 20 December 2015, Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed that Ancelotti would replace Pep Guardiola as manager for the 2016–17 season, signing a three-year contract. His contract started on 1 July 2016. His first training session was on 11 July 2016 and his first match was a pre–season win against SV Lippstadt 08.
His first match at Allianz Arena was a 1–0 pre–season win over his predecessor Guardiolas’s Manchester City. Bayern participated in the International Champions Cup. In the first match, Bayern lost to Milan in a shootout. In the second match, Bayern defeated Inter Milan. In the final match, Bayern lost to Real Madrid. On 14 August 2016, Bayern defeated Borussia Dortmund 2–0 in the German Super Cup. This was his first trophy as Bayern’s manager.
On 26 August 2016, in his Bundesliga debut, Bayern defeated Werder Bremen 6–0. In addition to defeating Borussia Dortmund, Carl Zeiss Jena and Werder Bremen, they defeated Schalke 04, Rostov, Ingolstadt 04, Hertha BSC, and Hamburger SV to win his first eight matches as head coach before losing to Atlético Madrid.
On 28 September 2017, Ancelotti was sacked as manager of Bayern Munich, following a 3–0 away loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the club’s second group match of the 2017–18 Champions League the night before.
Carlo Ancelotti Juventus
Ancelotti was appointed Juventus manager on February 1999 where he both succeeded and preceded Marcello Lippi, who returned to the club when Ancelotti left. With Juventus, he became less rigorous with the team’s formation, abandoning his favoured 4–4–2 in order to accommodate star French playmaker Zinedine Zidane in his preferred free role behind the forwards in the team’s starting line-up.
His first full season at Juventus began promisingly, as he immediately won the Intertoto Cup with the club by beating Rennes 4–2 on aggregate, although Juventus suffered a round of 16 elimination in the UEFA Cup, and lost the league title to Lazio by a single point on the final match-day of the season; this was after surrendering a five-point lead with three games remaining, which drew strong criticism from the fans and the board of directors
Ancelotti’s dismissal was announced by Juventus at half-time in the final league game of the season at home against Atalanta, on 17 June 2001, even though they were still within a chance of winning the title; Juventus won the match 2–1, although the result was not enough to prevent them from finishing behind Roma in the league. Ancelotti finished his tenure with Juventus with a record of 63 wins, 33 draws and 18 losses.
Carlo Ancelotti Milan
Ancelotti played for Milan from 1987 until 1992 and was a key part of the successful squad that won the Serie A title in 1988, consecutive European Cups in 1989 and 1990, two European Super Cups, two Intercontinental Cups and a Supercoppa Italiana under manager Arrigo Sacchi.
One of his most memorable moments with Milan was when he received a pass from Ruud Gullit, dribbled around two Real Madrid players and netted a powerful long-range shot during the Rossoneri’s 5–0 thrashing of Real Madrid in the 1989 European Cup semi-finals. He went on to play all 90 minutes in Milan’s 4–0 dismantling of Steaua București in the final. He played the final match of his career with the club in a 4–0 home win over Hellas Verona on 17 May 1992, in which he came off the bench in the final 20 minutes of the game and scored two goals, and was given an ovation by the fans.
On 5 November 2001, Ancelotti was appointed Milan manager after Fatih Terim was sacked due to poor results. In the 2001–02 season, Ancelotti led Milan to qualify for the Champions League once again, as the team managed a fourth-place finish in Serie A, and also reached semi-finals of the UEFA Cup, their best ever finish in the competition, losing out to Borussia Dortmund, and also suffered a semi-final elimination in the Coppa Italia to Juventus.
Milan won the 2003 Champions League final, beating Juventus 3–2 on penalties at Old Trafford, and also won the 2003 Coppa Italia Final over Roma. Under Ancelotti’s reign, Milan also won the 2004 Supercoppa Italiana. On 23 May 2007, Milan avenged their defeat to Liverpool two years earlier with a 2–1 win at the Olympic Stadium in Athens in the 2007 Champions League final, leading to Ancelotti’s second Champions League trophy as Milan coach and his fourth title overall, having also won it twice as a Milan player in 1989 and 1990. Ancelotti led Milan for 423 games.

Carlo Ancelotti News
Carlo Ancelotti replaces Maurizio Sarri as Napoli coach
Updated: Wed 23 May 2018
Carlo Ancelotti, the former Chelsea manager, has agreed to replace Maurizio Sarri as Napoli’s coach. The Italian, who has also managed Real Madrid and Juventus but was sacked by Bayern Munich last September, has signed a two-year deal with the Serie A club on a reported salary of €6m (£5.27m) a season.
Sarri’s departure from the club he guided to second place in Serie A could turn out to be the another move in the managerial carousel that sees him installed as Chelsea manager should Antonio Conte make his widely anticipated exit from Stamford Bridge this summer. However, sources in Italy say that the 59-year-old Sarri is mulling over an offer from Zenit St Petersburg, understood to be worth around £5.2m a year.
It is believed that Sarri’s preference would be to join Chelsea but it is not clear that he is the club’s top target. There have been suggestions that Napoli would waive compensation for Sarri from Chelsea if David Luiz were allowed to join them for a cut-price fee, probably less than £15m.
Following Sunday’s 2-1 home victory over Crotone, which saw Napoli end the season with 91 points, Sarri told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “Everything in life ends and it is better to finish things after writing a beautiful story. I don’t know if I will stay, I have to talk about it with my family.
“The situation is complicated. You can’t say you’re ready to go and try again with this squad when you don’t know that everyone will remain here. I don’t know if the club will manage to keep the players who have release clauses when offers will come in from big clubs. What I do think is that I could not go directly to another Italian team, and that if I had to make a change I would prefer to go abroad.”
Carlo Ancelotti Arsenal
Carlo Ancelotti reveals pre-agreement with Arsenal during talks with Napoli
Updated: 15 May 2018
Carlo Ancelotti has a pre-contract agreement in place with Arsenal, according to reports in Italy. Mikel Arteta is reportedly the leading candidate to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, but the Gunners hierarchy are considering several candidates.
Ancelotti is among those linked with the role and is currently out of work after he was sacked by Bayern Munich in September.
One vacancy which Ancelotti had also been linked with was the head coach for Italy’s national team, but that has now been filled by Roberto Mancini.
Napoli are also said to be interested in Ancelotti as the Serie A club are preparing in the event of Maurizio Sarri’s departure this summer.
According to Tuttosport, Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis has been in contact with Ancelotti and it was during their phone call when the former Chelsea manager revealed that he had a pre-agreement with Arsenal.
The report claims that Ancelotti, who still owns a house in London, is waiting for Arsenal to reject their alternative choices and make a move for him.
The 58-year-old already possesses Premier League experience having won the title and the FA Cup in his first season with Chelsea.
Ancelotti was sacked by Roman Abramovich at the end of the following campaign after failing to win a trophy.
Speaking last month about the possibility of succeeding Wenger as Arsenal boss, Ancelotti said: ‘I can say I would like to work again, but it doesn’t depend on me.
‘If I find the right possibility, the right project, I would be delighted to continue.’
