Coach Carlo Ancelotti Deserves To Be Praised

Coach Carlo Anceltti is a man who knows his onions when it comes to football: he has contributed positively to the round leather game both as a player and as coach. He deserves to be praised for his exploits in the world’s most popular sports.

Carlo Anceltti who was born on the 10th of June 1959 in Reggiolo province of Reggio Emilia, Italy has proven with time that he is one of the best coaches the world has ever known. His achievements speak volume and distinguish him as one who knows how to use available resources to get enviable results. He has been tested by different club sides and found to be capable and reliable.

He played for this national team (Italy) and was capped 25 times during his play days, including 2 world cup appearances (Mexico 86 and Italia 90). He also represented his country at the U-21 level. As a professional player he played mainly in the Italian Serie A, notably for AS Roma where he won the Coppa Italia in 1979/1980, 1980/81, 1983/84, 1985/86, and serie A in 1982/83 season.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti, while playing for AC Milan won the serie A in 1987/88, 1991/92; Italian super cup 1988, European Cup 1988/98, 1989/90; Super Cup 1989, 1990; and intercontinental cup 1989 and 1990. He had a total of 338 caps and 35 goals as a professional player.

He has had no mean achievement as a manager. His first coaching stint was with Reggiana in 1995 where his major achievement was making sure the club got promoted to the serie A. He soon left for Parma in 1996 where he had no special record. As the coach of Juventus for 2 years his only record was a two time runners up in the Italian league. His main breakthrough came as the coach of his former club AC Milan which he started to coach in 2001. He got to the semifinal of the UEFA Cup 2001/02 and eventually emerged 3rd place. He also won the Champions League 2002/03, Coppa Italia 2003, Scudetto 2004, Super Cup 2004 Serie A runners-up 2004/05, 2005/06; runners-up 2005 Champions League; Champion League 2007 (making it the second time as a coach and 4th time overall); FIFA club world cup 2007 . He eventually left AC Milan on 23rd May, 2009. At least for the period he was with AC Milan he won the major titles you could think of - Scudetto, Super cup, Champions league, Coppa Italia and FIFA Club world Cup. Combine this with his titles as a player and you see that Ancelotti has won virtually almost all available titles in the soccer world.

Aucelotti became the coach of Chelsea FC of England in July 2009 and won his first silver ware on Aug. 9, 2009 by beating Manchester United in a penalty shoot-out to claim the Community Shield after full time had ended 2-2. On the 9th of May 2010 he lifted the Premiership title just in his first season as the coach of Chelsea. He made it the third silverware in a season after beating Portsmouth FC 1-0 at the Wembley stadium on 15th May 2010 to lift the FA Cup. Carlo Ancelotti, you are truly a great coach.
