The 4-1 thrashing of FC Barcelona in the final also makes the Italian coach the second manager with the most games in charge of Real Madrid (264) after the legendary Miguel Muñoz.
Carlo Ancelotti is living history at Real Madrid. Crowned ‘SuperChampion of Spain’ in the final in Arabia against FC Barcelona, Real’s eternal rivals, the Italian coach can boast of being one of the most successful coaches in the history of this centenary club. The trophy, brilliantly won with a severe thrashing of Barça, leaves Carlo Ancelotti with 11 titles to his name as Real Madrid coach, the same as Zinedine Zidane and just three behind Miguel Muñoz, Real Madrid’s greatest coaching legend.
“I’m on cloud nine,” confessed Ancelotti shortly after beating Barcelona in a final in which Vinicius scored a brilliant hat-trick and in which they were far superior to Xavi Hernandez’s side. “I am proud of my players and their competitive ambition. To keep winning titles is not easy but they always want more,” admitted a proud Carletto.
The match in Arabia also puts Carlo Ancelotti in the top two in Real Madrid’s history as the coach with the most games in charge (264) after Miguel Muñoz (605) and ahead of Zidane (263). These are numbers that he still has time to improve on after the club made his renewal for two more seasons official last December.
