The return of Carlo Ancelotti as Real Madrid coach has been a first for many, including Joan Laporta, who was asked about his opinion regarding the Italian’s return to the Whites. Before this, the president of Barcelona reacted with surprise and managed to respond, in the first instance, with a short phrase: “Oh yes?”
Before getting into his car, the Barça manager added one more comment about Ancelotti: “A great coach.” It should be noted that, prior to the surprise by the arrival of the Italian coach to Real Madrid, Joan Laporta was signing autographs on the street.

The president of FC Barcelona received the news of the new coach of the merengue team, amid changes within his club. Despite the new signings of Kun Agüero and Eric García, the Blaugrana have not yet confirmed whether Ronald Koeman will continue to be in charge of their bench; or yes, they will look for a new coach to take over the team.
Real Madrid decided to trust Carlo Ancelotti once again. After six years out of the ‘White House’, ‘Carletto’ will take the reins of the white bench in search of new victories. The contract was signed for a duration of three years.
“Real Madrid CF announces that Carlo Ancelotti will be the new coach of the first team for the next three seasons”, Wrote the club in the statement announcing the incorporation of the Italian.
Ancelotti was Real Madrid coach between 2013 and 2015. He failed to win LaLiga; however, he lifted a Copa del Rey in 2014 and, the same year, won the Champions League. Zidane was his second coach on this path.
