8 times Carlo Ancelotti was the coolest man in the world

Carlo Ancelotti is one of the best managers in the history of football and we can’t help but be sucked in by the cool persona of the Real Madrid boss.

The Italian coach really has seen it all during his managerial career. With four Champions League titles and countless other trophies to his name, Ancelotti is one of the best in the business.

Having managed well over 1,000 matches in his career so far, the 63-year-old still maintains his love for the game. We’ve picked out eight moments when Ancelotti really was the coolest man in the world.

Still got the skills

Ancelotti enjoyed a playing career which spanned from 1976-1992. His technical skills haven’t been lost over the years and he’d probably still get a game these days even at 63.

The good guy

Even footballers at the highest level appreciate a day off every now and again. Following Real Madrid’s 4-0 hammering of Barcelona, Ancelotti couldn’t resist giving his players the next day off.

Ice cold reactions 

The Italian boss has pretty much seen everything in the game. Having made his debut back in 1976 before embarking on his coaching career in 1992, nothing can come as a surprise to him anymore.

While managing Everton, he oversaw a thrilling 5-4 victory over Tottenham with Bernard scoring an extra-time winner. Ancelotti was the coolest man in the whole stadium.

Don Carlo

This picture is worthy of being hung in the Louvre. After winning a record fourth Champions League title, Ancelotti celebrated in the only way he knows how.

The eyebrow 

Real Madrid’s 2022-23 Champions League winning campaign was absolutely box office. They became quite the comeback specialists as they beat PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City along the way to the final.

As soon as Ancelotti raised his eyebrow, you just knew it was game over.


After winning the La Liga title with Real Madrid last year, Ancelotti became the first manager to have won each of Europe’s top five leagues.

Having won league titles with Madrid, Chelsea, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and PSG he celebrated in the only way he knows how. We’ll never tire of watching this video.

Post-match interviews 

With all his years in the game, it’s only right that Ancelotti has given his fare share of iconic interviews. Some of the best even came during his short stint with Everton.

The Italian had been questioned on whether James Rodriguez would be able to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League and he had the perfect response lined up.
