The Italian manager, Carlo Ancelotti, is one of the smartest minds in football. He is nicknamed “Don Carlo” as he managed the Real Madrid team during their illustrious run from 2013 to 2015. Well, recently, before the Sevilla vs Real Madrid clash, he said something about a former Madrid player, Sergio Ramos, which will melt the hearts of football fans.
Real Madrid said, Carlo Ancelotti said,
“If I’m here today, it’s because of Sergio Ramos.”
He also mentioned, “If he hadn’t scored the goal in the Champions League final, I probably wouldn’t be here.”
Real Madrid was unbeatable under the management of Ancelotti from 2013 to 2015. They won the 2013-14 Copa del Rey, the 2013-14 UEFA Champions League, the 2014 UEFA Super Cup, and the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup.
In all of this successful campaign, Sergio Ramos played a major role. He used to stand like a wall in defense, break every attack of the opposition, and also score on various occasions. Collectively, all of them were in the best form of their football careers.
Similarly, Ancelotti won various championships for Real Madrid after returning as manager in 2021. Real Madrid won the 2021–22 La Liga, the 2022–23 Copa del Rey, the 2021–2022 UEFA Champions League, the 2022 UEFA Super Cup, and the 2022 FIFA Club World Cup.
