Carlo Ancelotti has become the first manager to win all five of Europe’s big leagues

‘A lot of emotion, we have met a challenge,’ Ancelotti said. ‘The season has been spectacular. Lots of consistency. I have to thank the players for their work and their attitude.

‘Today we have to celebrate, not talk. I want to celebrate. It fills me with pride to win in the five major leagues. I can say that I like what I do. It means I’ve done pretty well.’

Ancelotti lifted Serie ‘A’ with AC Milan back in 2004 – a year after guiding the Italian giants to Champions League glory – before he won the Premier League title with Chelsea six years later.

The now 62-year-old Italian lifted the Premier League trophy with Chelsea in 2010

 

Ancelotti then won the Ligue 1 title in France with Paris Saint-Germain in 2013

 

The Bundesliga was the fourth title ticked off Ancelotti’s list after Bayern won the league in 2017

 

Ancelotti has now won 22 major honours in a trophy-laden career, including three Champions League crowns.

He is the also the oldest manager to win La Liga at 62 years and 325 days.

The La Liga title eluded the Italian coach during his first stint in Madrid, although he did win the famous ‘La Decima’ – the 10th European Cup in the club’s history – in 2014.
