Date of birth: 10 June 1959
Nationality: Italian

• One of only seven people to have lifted the European Champion Clubs' Cup as both a player and coach and the second manager, after Bob Paisley, to win the trophy three times. A combative midfielder, he helped Roma win the 1983 Serie A title and four Italian Cups before joining Milan in 1986 where he added two more league championships, as well as back-to-back European Cup triumphs in 1989 and 1990.

• Began coaching in 1995 with a year at Reggiana, earning them promotion from Serie B, before two seasons at Parma. Replaced Marcello Lippi at Juventus in February 1999 and returned to San Siro as coach of Milan in 2001.

• During eight seasons in charge, won the UEFA Champions League in 2003 and 2007, but lost the 2005 final on penalties to Liverpool FC after leading 3-0. Milan also won a Serie A title, a Coppa Italia and the 2007 FIFA Club World Cup.

• Resigned on 31 May 2009 and was named as Chelsea's new manager the following day. His first season in London ended with the club winning the league and cup double for the first time. Dismissed at the end of his second campaign, Ancelotti took charge of Paris in December 2011, steering the club to a first league title in 19 years in 2012/13, his sole season in charge.

• Left to take over at Madrid, winning the Copa del Rey and the club's tenth European Cup in his first season, becoming only the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs in the process. Madrid then added the UEFA Super Cup, the fifth time Ancelotti had won that trophy as player or coach, before his dismissal at the end of the 2014/15 season. That December he was appointed Bayern coach, taking the reins in summer 2016 and winning the Bundesliga in his debut campaign.
