Former Chelsea Manager and current Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti was once pegged as the man to replace David Moyes at Manchester United. Obviously, Louis van Gaal was the guy who took the job and the two squared off today in an preseason international friendly in Ann Arbor, Michigan in front of 109, 318 fans. The highest ever attended game in the United States saw United triumph 3-1 in an exhibition game. Nicknamed Carletto, Ancelotti played as a midfielder and had a successful career with Roma with whom he won one Scudetto and four Coppa Italia honours and was part of the legendary late 1980s Milan team with which he won two Scudetti and two European Cups in a five-year period. He’s managed Reggiana, Parma and Juventus, and Milan. It’s short, especially given the time lost in translation, but have a listen to what he had to say today postgame He won the Scudetto in 2004, the Champions League in 2003 and 2007 and the Coppa Italia in 2003. They were also Serie A and Champions League runner-ups in 2005. He is one of six to have won the European Cup/Champions League as player and manager. In May 2009, he was appointed Chelsea manager and in his first season led them to a historic Premier League and FA Cup Double. He became only the second non-British manager to win the double, the other being Arsène Wenger. After an uneven 2010–11 Premier League season in which Chelsea failed to retain the title, Ancelotti was sacked in May 2011. Ancelotti then moved on to Paris Saint-Germain. In his first full season with the club, Carlo Ancelotti managed them to the Ligue 1 title and the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League. On 25 June 2013, Real Madrid announced the signing of Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager on a three-year deal. Ancelotti will undoubtedly be happy at his side’s 1-0 win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday, which also preserved his unbeaten record. Real Madrid took first blood in their Champions League semi-final tie against defending champions Bayern Munich as Los Blancos won the first leg 1-0 at the Bernabeu.
