Real Madrid have built a dynasty in Europe, and a lot of the credit belongs to the platform provided by the club’s coaches over the years.
Carlo Ancelotti has played a pivotal role in establishing Los Blancos as the biggest European heavyweights, having won 10 trophies in his tenure for the Merengues.
The Italian won four titles in his first spell and six of them since returning.
The possibility of adding more silverware is on the cards this season, but with a contract running until next year, Ancelotti’s future is up in the air.
Ancelotti speaks about his future
Speaking to Partidazo COPE, when asked what his future looks like, he stated: “I will coach the team until July 1, but I don’t know what year it will be. I haven’t made up my mind yet.”
The coach has constantly been speculated to be joining the Selecao, with an impending arrival to Brazilian football once the duration of his contract at Real Madrid runs out.
The CBF has been persistent in their pursuit of Ancelotti, and the president, Ednaldo Rodrigues, even announced that Ancelotti will take over Brazil’s national team ahead of the Copa America.
Playing down the rumors, Ancelotti has clearly mentioned that he has not made up his mind yet, which opens up several possibilities.
It remains to be seen what path Ancelotti chooses, as remaining in the Spanish Capital is the Italian’s objective for now.
However, Real Madrid are also likely to move on from the manager, with reports that Los Blancos are eyeing Xabi Alonso to take responsibility once Ancelotti’s contract expires.
Time will tell where the coach’s destiny lies. For now, he will be focused on achieving titles with Real Madrid.
