After spending two seasons as Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti will no longer be with the team as he has been sacked following a disappointing season.
Ancelotti led Real Madrid to a Champions League title in his first season, but Real Madrid failed to win any major trophies in his second season. Here is a video confirming Ancelotti’s departure.
Real Madrid won the UEFA Super Cup in August 2014 before claiming the FIFA Club World Cup in December after claiming the Copa del Rey in Ancelotti’s first season.
Ancelotti followed that up by leading Real Madrid to 22 consecutive victories, but their inability to win a major trophy ultimately cost Ancelotti his job.
However, he drew the applause of fans after Real Madrid coasted to a 7-3 victory over Getafe as Cristiano Ronaldo scored three goals, and he showed support for Ancelotti on Twitter.
Great coach and amazing person. Hope we work together next season. pic.twitter.com/HqHHGjGGUH

Real Madrid was knocked out in the semifinals of the Champions League by Juventus, and they finished two points behind Barcelona, who took home the La Liga championship.
Ancelotti recently revealed that he plans to take a sabbatical for a year if sacked so that he can undergo back surgery.
There are rumors that he may take on the AC Milan job since he previously coached them to two UEFA Champions League titles, which were won in 2003 and 2007.
However, there is evidence that works against Ancelotti, as it has been pointed out that he only won three domestic medals in 18 years despite spending time at rich franchises such as Real Madrid, who are only behind Barcelona when it comes to wealth.
Meanwhile, managers such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho have won many more titles while leading successful franchises such as Manchester United and Chelsea.
Ferguson led Man United to 13 titles in 27 years while Mourinho has won seven titles with different squads in 11 seasons.
