Madrid’s season is defined in two images. One represents euphoria and another satisfaction. From Alaba and his chair to heaven after going back to PSG to Ancelotti and his cigar, accompanied by Vinicius, Militao, Rodrygo and the Austrian celebrating the domestic alirón. The common denominator is success. A Champions League and a League with special meanings for the Reggiolo coach. Carletto He has become the first coach to win the European Cup four times (beating Bob Paisley and Zidane) and the only one to have lifted the league title in the five major leagues. With Milan, Chelsea, PSG and Bayern he had already fulfilled and on his return to the white team he has crossed our country off his list. Although 2021-22 has been another milestone in his career on the bench: Ancelotti has become the coach with the most victories of the 21st centurywith the top leagues (England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France) and European and international competitions as a scale.
He started the campaign in second place, after the 588 wins achieved by Arsène Wenger with Arsenal. The 39 victories achieved by Madrid this year have turned the tables. In addition, the triplet completed with the Spanish Super Cup has added the titles 20, 21 and 22 to your personal showcase, tying José Mourinho for second, behind only Guardiola’s 31. The Portuguese and Santpedor, with 573 and 563, are in third and fourth place in absolute value, with sir Alex Ferguson, who is penalized for having split successes between two centuries, in fifth position. In the same way that Mourinho would climb higher on the list if the Portuguese league were not out of the Big-5, leaving out his triumphs with Uniao Leiria, Benfica and Porto at the domestic level. Jürgen Klopp (454), Rafa Benítez (439), Unai Emery (415), Manuel Pellegrini (387) and Diego Pablo Simeone (349) complete the top-10 brightest of the century.
a successful marriage
In winning percentage is Guardiola who dominates again, with an excellent 74% (in 759 games) after his spells at Barça, Bayern and Manchester City, beating Fergie (64.9% in 757), Mou (62.1% in 923) and our protagonist, a Ancelotti who, with 60.4% in 1,023 crashes, completes the quartet of coaches that manages to present a balance of over 60%. The great bulk of the Madrid coach has been at Milan, where he directed up to 420 games. More than double that in the white set. Therefore, this course has also served to confirm that Ancelotti-Madrid marriage is synonymous with success. With the rossoneri, eight titles in as many seasons. On the Paseo de la Castellana, seven (two Champions, one League, one Spanish Super Cup, one European Cup, one Copa del Rey and one Club World Cup) in three years (2013-14, 2014-15 y 2021-22).
As a icing, the 73.1% of wins that Ancelotti has as white coach (only Pellegrini and the 75% who signed in 2009-10 are ahead) is your best data on all the benches where he has acted as conductor. He slightly improves 71.7% of his time at Bayern and widely the rest: PSG (63.6%), Chelsea (62.4%), Milan (59.9%), Juventus (55.3%), Napoli (52%), Parma (48.3%) and Everton (46.3%). Ancelotti earns more than anyone in this century and Real Madrid is his best springboard.
