- Carlo Ancelotti was Real Madrid manger for two years and won La Decima
- Despite that 10th Champions League he was released by the club in 2015
- A popular figure with players and fans, he bonded with Cristiano Ronaldo
Former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti believes his calm and collected approach has served him well throughout his career and agreed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘big bear’ comparison.
During his two years at the Bernabeu, Ancelotti was an increasingly popular figure among the players, in particular Ronaldo, who often spoke highly of their relationship.
Last year, the Portugal international said of the Italian: ‘He is like a big bear, he’s a cute guy, such a sensitive person’, a comment Ancelotti found hard to disagree with.
