Carlo Ancelotti is undoubtedly Mr. Champions league having won five titles; two as a player and three as a Coach. No manager after the rebranding of the European Cup to the Uefa Champions League has won with three different clubs. With Bayern Munich’s form in the Bundesliga and its free scoring prowess upfront as evident against Hamburg in the 8-0 thrashing at the weekend, then Carlo Ancelotti with the right tactics can achieve the unthinkable.

This is what every manager dreams off and most often times this count as a factor in choosing clubs that feature in the UEFA Champions league every season.

In 2010, after Jose Mourinho won his second UEFA Champions league title with Internazionale Milano, he moved on to Spain to try and make this historic achievement but three semi-final defeats ended this dream at Real Madrid. Another semi-final loss followed him at his second spell in charge of Chelsea FC.

Carlo Ancelotti has the right materials at Bayern Munich

During the 2016 summer transfer window, Ancelotti bought Renato Sanchez and Matt Hummels. Renato’s work ethic and determination contributed to Portugal’s EURO 2016 win and his performance would prove vital to the team if along the way Bayern faces a team with extensive physical dominance.

Defenders with Matt Hummels characteristics are rare and in partnering Jerome Boateng at the heart of defense gives Manuel Neuer enough protection for him to exercise his passing skills.

Manuel Neuer also plays with the two in the German National Team so the telepathy among the trio is unheralded.

Aside them, players such as Arturo Vidal (one of the finest box-to-box midfielders in the modern game) and Robert Lewandowski’s quality matches the elite players in the modern era with the latter having already scored 19 league goals and an additional six in the UEFA Champions league.

Bayern Munich can do a Real Madrid with Carlo Ancelotti

After three unsuccessful semi-final attempts of Real Madrid under Jose Mourinho (2011-2013), Ancelotti finally broke the jinx and took the team to its first final in 12 years and won the club La Decima.

After three unsuccessful semi-final attempts of Bayern Munich under Pep Guardiola (2014-2016), he is definitely the man to help the team cross this stage and win its sixth title having last won the competition under Jupp Henyckes in 2013.

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti is riding with Jose Mourinho, Jupp Henyckes, Ottmar Hitzfield and Ernst Happel as managers who have won with two different clubs and if he wins the UEFA Champions league with Bayern Munich in the 2016/17 season, he would undoubtedly fall into a class of his own.
