Ancelotti: Everton's new manager in Opta numbers
Utilising Opta data, we assess Carlo Ancelotti's career in numbers as the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich boss takes over at Everton.
Everton have completed a major coup in appointing Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager on a four-and-a-half-year deal.
Ancelotti, who previously managed in the Premier League with Chelsea, returns to England after he was sacked by Napoli on 10 December, despite guiding the Serie A club to the Champions League knockout stages.
He replaces Marco Silva, who was dismissed on 5 December following a 5-2 defeat to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby, with Duncan Ferguson having been in temporary charge since then.
The Italian – the first coach from his nation to win the Premier League – has had a glittering career, taking charge of 735 top-flight matches in total thanks to spells at Parma, Juventus, Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Napoli.
As Ancelotti takes over at Goodison, we have used Opta data to take a look at his glittering career in numbers:
33 - Of his 68 league matches at the helm at Parma between 1996 and 1998, Ancelotti won 33 times, suffering 14 defeats.
2 - Parma finished second in Serie A in their first season under Ancelotti, though could only manage a sixth-place finish in the following campaign.
61 - Ancelotti took charge of 82 top-flight games in Turin, managing 50 wins – giving him a 61 per cent win ratio.
0 - Across 23 seasons in management, Ancelotti has never finished outside of the top seven in any domestic league, coming seventh only once, with Juve in 1998-99.
282 - Ancelotti's longest spell at one club came at Milan, where he spent eight seasons, managing the Rossoneri in 282 league fixtures.
1 - His first league title came in 2003-04, when Milan finished top of Serie with 82 points.
3 - Milan's Serie A success came on the back of glory in the Champions League in 2002-03. Ancelotti has won Europe's biggest prize on three occasions, with only Zinedine Zidane and former Liverpool manager Bob Paisley able to match that total.
4 - Only four coaches to have managed 30 or more games in the Premier League have a higher win percentage than Ancelotti's 63.2 – Jürgen Klopp, Alex Ferguson, Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola.
103 - Chelsea set a Premier League goals record for a single season when they netted 103 times under Ancelotti during 2009-10. It is a record which was only surpassed by Manchester City in 2017-18.
172 - In total, Chelsea scored 172 goals in 76 league fixtures while Ancelotti was in charge at Stamford Bridge.
5 - Managers with the most points from their opening 13 Premier League games at a single club:— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 28, 2019
Hiddink (Chelsea) - 34
Ancelotti (Chelsea) - 33
Scolari (Chelsea) - 32
Solskjaer (Manchester United) - 32
Mourinho (Chelsea) - 32
47.4 - Fixing Everton's leaky defence will be a top priority for Ancelotti, who during his time at PSG had a clean sheet percentage of 47.4, with the Ligue 1 giants not conceding in 27 out of 57 matches.
297 - In total during his two seasons at Parc des Princes, PSG had 297 shots on target. That was, however, significantly fewer than Ancelotti's Chelsea (532) or Madrid (583) sides managed.
1,428 - Los Blancos had almost 1,500 shots during Ancelotti's time at the club.
867 - However, they were also the most open at the back when compared to Chelsea, PSG, Bayern and Napoli, allowing 867 attempts at their own goal.
1 - Spain is the only country in which Ancelotti has not won a league title. He also won his third Champions League crown with Madrid, in 2014.
68.6 - Having taken over from Guardiola, it is no surprise to see that possession was the order of the day for Ancelotti at Bayern, who averaged 68.6 per cent of the ball under his tutelage.
89 - In Ancelotti's only full campaign at Bayern, they scored 89 Bundesliga goals, conceding just 22 in return.
29 - From 53 matches in charge of Napoli in Serie A, Ancelotti claimed 29 victories. His record in 2019-20 was a comparatively poor one, however, with four defeats and six draws from 15 games.
735 - After leaving Napoli, Ancelotti has taken charge of 735 top-tier league fixtures, with a win percentage of 60.5.
998 - Napoli had just under 1,000 shots at goal during Ancelotti's spell.
