Carlo Ancelotti joins Sir Alex Ferguson to have the most Champions League wins as a manager of all-time

CARLO ANCELOTTI has joined legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to have the most Champions League wins as a manager.

The Italian, 63, has won Europe’s top club competition four times – which is a record in itself.

But after Champions League holders Real Madrid beat Celtic 5-1 at the Bernabeu, Ancelotti reached another impressive milestone.

He has equalled legendary United boss Ferguson, who has won the Champions League twice, to hold the most wins as a manager in the competition.

The win over Celtic pushed Ancelotti onto 102 wins as a manager, matching Ferguson with five games less managed.

Ferguson’s last Champions League win came on November 7, 2012 with a 3-1 away win over Braga.

Ancelotti would like to reach 200 UCL wins before he retires.

Speaking last year the ex-Everton boss said: “Let’s go for the 200. Happy to do it here at Madrid!

“It’s been a lot of games on the bench. I think I’ve done pretty well.”

Whether Ancelotti holds onto the record for a long period of time is yet to be seen.


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is just five wins away from drawing level with Ancelotti and Ferguson.

The Spaniard has won the competition twice as a manager and has reached 97 wins in just 154 games.

Retired legendary Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will occupy fourth for the meantime.

In 33 less games, two-time Jose Mourinho is just five wins behind his old rival on 81 wins.

But the Special One is currently managing Europa League outfit Roma.

He is, however, the first and ONLY manager to win all of Uefa’s club competitions after storming the Europa Conference League last term.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, Dutch manager Luis van Gaal, Rafael Benitez, Ottmar Hitzfeld, Diego Simeone and Massimiliano Allegri make up the rest of the top ten.

But the five bosses remain 23 wins or more adrift Mourinho and Co.
