Real Madrid: Carlo Ancelotti confirms retirement by end of 2023-24 season

New Delhi: Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti has announced that he will retire when his time in Spain is brought to an end. Following 16 years as a player and 30 years (and counting) as a coach, the legendary manager looks likely to call time on his career at the end of the 2023-24 season.

Ancelotti became the first ever coach to win all five of Europe’s top leagues when he claimed the Spanish title last season, and he capped a remarkable campaign by winning his 4th and Madrid’s 14th Champions League title.

Carlo Ancelotti’s accomplishments so far:-

The 63-year-old won three Serie A titles with Roma and AC Milan in the 1980s, as well as back-to-back European Cups with Arrigo Sacchi’s Milan in 1989 and 1990. He returned to Milan as coach in 2001 and in eight years at the San Siro won the 2004 league title and two Champions Leagues.

He also led Chelsea to a league and FA Cup double in 2010, setting a Premier League record of 103 goals scored in the process. He also won Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain in 2013 and the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich four years later.

“Twenty-four titles in my career? The truth is that these numbers do not matter to me. I’ll think about that at the end when taking stock makes more sense. Now I am focused on training; I like the daily work,” Ancelotti said in an interview.

“Until a few years ago, my priority was tactics. Now I focus on human relations, getting to know people and new generations. This stage at Madrid will bring an end to my career. After Real Madrid, I will retire. Real Madrid is at the very top of football. It makes sense to call it a day after this experience,” he added.
