Ancelotti, excited about the start of the Champions League on his return to Belgrade
With three titles, Carlo will be the most successful coach of those who participate in this edition.
Carlo returns to his favorite competition, the Champions League. The competition that has made him a legend of the benches at the mercy of the three titles he has won (two with AC Milan and one with Real Madrid). In this edition, he will be the most successful coach since no one has managed to lift the Champions as many times as he has. However, Ancelotti is ambitious and expects to fight until the end with Napoli. “We want to do the best we can in the Champions League. The first step is to try to qualify from the group stage, “said the Italian.
The first match will be on Tuesday (20: 45h CEST) in Belgrade, against the Red Star. In a pitch and against a club that the Italian coach knows perfectly. There he began to forge the story of the great Arrigo Sacchi´s AC Milan with which Carlo won two Champions League as a player. “I’ve played twice in Belgrade as a player and as a coach and has gone well, we hope good things comes in threes, but apart from that, we know we will face a solid team in a very difficult pitch,” Carlo acknowledged.

Tomorrow’s game could be a very different story, although Ancelotti expects to start laying the foundations of his European project with Napoli.
