Former Roma and Italy star Franco Tancredi says that Carlo Ancelotti is the best coach in the world.

The Real Madrid boss has had the privilege of managing some of the top clubs in the world like AC Milan, Chelsea, and Real Madrid. He has won numerous accolades including the Champions League three times in his career. Ancelotti continued his success at the Spanish club by getting them to the FIFA Club World Cup title. This puts Madrid as the world champions after more than a decade.Tancredi has praised the way in which he has made Madrid an attractive club once again.

During the days of Jose Mourinho, Madrid were seen as the anti-football party. Ancelotti has brought attractive football to the club while he has also been engaged in less confrontation with opposition managers and other issues. The fact that Ancelotti simply gets on with the job makes him an ideal manager for a club like Madrid with a lot of political pressure.Tancredi says that the former Milan midfielder is hugely benefited by his character. His soft nature helps him get the best out of players at every moment. Despite losing top players like Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria, Madrid have been performing even better than last season.

“At the moment, he’s the best in the world, because he makes every team play well. This year, Madrid lost two of their best in [Angel] Di Maria and Xabi [Alonso], and despite that, he’s perfectly got the team back together. Plus, all the players talk about how brilliant he is, even the ones who aren’t playing.He’s a gentleman, a man with a lot of discipline. He likes to joke, but when he gets angry, he gets really serious. To listen to a global star like Cristiano [Ronaldo] talk so well of him makes me feel proud,” saidTancredi.
