Today it was revealed that Carlo Ancelotti will be the man to take over at the Bernabeu. The 54 year old has been managing Paris Saint Germain since 2011 but on the 9Th May announced that he would be leaving and set out to be the next main man at Real Madrid. Ancelotti was the favourite to land the new role after Jose Mourinho left for Chelsea, the bookies all had him down to get the job. We all wonder how he will cope managing the players in the Real Madrid football kit, will he succeed Jose Mourinho's former team?

The Italian was named coach of the season during his time in France and has also succeeded at many other clubs. Ancelotti has been managing since 1995; he first managed Regianna and Parma, before moving on to some bigger clubs. One of the main Italian clubs he coached was Juventus in 1999, he ended his spell there 0n a positive with many consecutive wins with his team. After Juventus the Italian moved on to manage AC Milan in 2001, his season there did not get off to a flying start, club owner Silvio Berlusconi was not impressed with Ancelotti's tactics. However further in to the middle of the season things started to look up and in 2003 Ac Milan won the UEFA Champions League, they also went on to win the Coppa Italia final. There were many more trophies and medals being collected during his six year stay. Ancelotti stayed at Milan until 2009 so grew very close to the club, supporters and players.

He knew it was time to move on, but this time not to another European club. The 54 year old decided to take on Premier League club Chelsea. On June 1St Ancelotti was named as the new Chelsea manager, he did very well at Chelsea leading them the Premier League title in 2010, he also helped them to secure the F.A cup and many more wins. Chelsea own Roman Abromovich has always been known for his do well or go attitude toward managers and this did not stop when it came down do Ancelotti. Even though he had done so well throughout his stay and in the previous season he could not win the title for them again and was sacked by the owner.

Paris Saint Germain was his next mission, in December 2011 he was appointed as the new manager of the French side, there he succeeded and took on the role of coach very well. During the 2012-13 season he managed to get PSG to the Champions League Quater Final when they lost to Barcelona on the away goals rule. On the 19th May 2013 the Italian requested to leave the club and is now set for the Real Madrid job.

Carlo Ancelotti will cherish the chance to work with players such as Ronaldo; it will be exciting to see whether he makes any changes and brings any new players in. A possible bid for Malaga playmaker Isco has been on the cards for a while but Mourinho never carried out the deal so it will be interesting to see if Ancelotti signs him up. More talks that will soon be cleared up surround the future of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain. He is set to move to either Arsenal or Juventus, but nothing has been made concrete yet. New manager Carlo Ancelotti will deal with this and do what he sees fit with the Argentine striker.

It will be hard to manage such a prolific team as Real Madrid but we think he can do it, he has been very successful over the years and will bring in some great new tactics for the Spanish giants.
What do you think of the appointment of Ancelotti?
Will he show that the players in the Real Madrid football kit mean business? Will Ronaldo stay at Madrid?
