Carlo Ancelotti returned to take over as manager of Real Madrid on Tuesday after Zinedine Zidane announced that he would be leaving. Just like the Frenchman, his Italian successor will be taking over for his second spell at the Santiago Bernabéu, which comes 18 months after joining Premier League club Everton.

Carlo Ancelotto: a look back at his career

Carlo Ancelotti was born on 10 June 1959 in Reggiolo, Italy. He has enjoyed incredible success as a player and as a manager, applying his skills in the dugout across LaLiga, Serie A, the Premier League, Bundesliga and Ligue 1.

As a player and his early management career

A midfielder for Parma, AS Roma and AC Milan, Ancelotti helped Roma win the 1983 Serie A title and four Italian Cups before joining AC Milan.

He won two more league titles at Milan, and back-to-back European Cups in 1989 and 1990.

Ancelotti was capped 26 times for Italy, scored once and played in the 1990 World Cup.

He began his coaching career at Reggiana in 1995, earning them promotion from Serie B. He joined Parma the following season, finishing second place in Serie A in his first campaign.

Serie A | Juventus and AC Milan

Ancelotti moved to Juventus in 1999 but failed to match the success of predecessor Marcello Lippi and departed two years later.

He returned to San Siro as coach of Milan in 2001 and won two Champions Leagues, a Scudetto, a Coppa Italia and the 2007 FIFA Club World Cup.

He left Milan in May 2009 after guiding them to third in Serie A, joining Premier League club Chelsea on a three-year contract.

Bayern Munich in 2016

Premier League | Chelsea

Chelsea won the Premier League in his first season and completed the 2009-10 double with a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth in the FA Cup final.

Ancelotti was sacked in May 2011 after Chelsea finished nine points behind Manchester United in the Premier League standings.

They also lost to United in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ligue 1 | Paris Saint-Germain

Ancelotti joined PSG in December 2011 and the club ended the campaign as Ligue 1 runners-up.

He led them to their first French title since 1994 the following season.

Ancelotti's record during first spell at Real Madrid

LaLiga | Real Madrid

Ancelotti joined Real Madrid in June 2013 and delivered the club's 10th European crown in his first season. He also won the Copa del Rey.

Real set a Spanish record with 22 consecutive wins at the end of 2014 but their form tailed off and they were knocked out of the Champions League by Juventus, while Barcelona won La Liga. Ancelotti was sacked a year before his contract expired.

Bundesliga | Bayern Munich

Ancelotti replaced Pep Guardiola at Bayern in July 2016.

He led Bayern to their fifth consecutive Bundesliga title in his first season, but they were beaten in the Champions League quarters by Real Madrid.

He was sacked in September 2017 following Bayern's defeat by Paris St Germain in the Champions League group stages.

Serie A | Napoli

Ancelotti returned to Italy as coach of Napoli in May 2018.

Napoli finished second in Serie A, 11 points behind Juventus, and were eliminated in the Europa League quarter-finals by Arsenal.

Ancelotti was sacked in December 2019 following a poor run of results in the league.

Premier League | Everton

Ancelotti was appointed manager of Everton 11 days after his Napoli exit, and he guided the club to 12th place in the Premier League.

Everton ended last season in 10th place and Ancelotti left on Tuesday to become Real Madrid manager for the second time.
