About Carlo Ancelotti

Ancelotti was born in the heartlands of Nothern Italy, Reggiolo to cheese farmers and a neighborhood of cheese farmers. While growing he spent most of his time at his father’s farm offering an extra hard.
He really loved his home state but what he hated is seeing his parents work twice harder and still earn peanuts from their farming. Looking at the condition of his parents he knew cheese farming couldn’t free them from poverty.
With ambition and vision to change his background, all he could think of at that time was football. Through hard work, determination, and persistence Carlo found his way out of the cheese farm to the land he dreamt of, the land of non-stop football. His journey to free his parent from poverty began at Parma where he was molded and sharpened to be a football mercenary.

The club was the club’s first title after being out in the cold for 19 good years. Following a well-done job, he was awarded Joint Ligue 1 Manager of the Year. After reviving PSG, Ancelloti’s services were requested by Real Madrid, a Serie A club based in Italy his hometown.
