Ancelotti Appointed At Madrid
Real Madrid have found the successor of Jose Mourinho after he left for former club Chelsea. Carlo Ancelotti has been appointed the new head coach of Madrid on a one year deal. Ancelotti won Ligue 1 with PSG and won manager of the year in France.
A statement from Real read: "Carlo Michelangelo Ancelotti will coach Real Madrid next season. The Italian has experienced success in every country where he has managed and arrives in the Spanish capital after being named coach of the season in France."
Ancelotti, who has previously managed the likes of Juventus and AC Milan, took over at PSG at the end of 2011 and he led the affluent side to the Ligue 1 title last season.
Ancelotti's first task after being presented will likely be to clarify the role to now be played at the club by his former playing charge Zinedine Zidane, who president Florentino Perez first suggested would have overall control of football matters in a director of football role, but has more recently said would have a more hands-on position as a coach on the training ground.
The new manager of Madrid was keen to tell the Spanish media that they should not expect any more big deals in this transfer window after the arrival of Bale. Ancelotti however, said that Madrid are looking to bring in some young players as he looks to develop the young talent into the next big star. Players such as Julian Draxler and Timo Werner are rumoured to be in talks with Madrid, although this is only a rumour.
