Carlo Ancelotti will release a new book on his tactical and managerial style, including a preface by David Beckham.
The Italian Coach announced ‘Il mio Albero di Natale’ (My Christmas Tree) will be in the stores and available as an eBook from November 6.
Written in Italian, it will cover his tactics – hence the title referring to his 4-3-2-1 system used at Milan – and experiences at clubs including Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
“Ancelotti opens up his notebook to reveal the secrets of how he deals with players (and men), the training methods, tactical solutions adopted in various teams depending on the story of the club and the missions set by Presidents.
“It is not all about theory, so for the first time Carletto watches back 10 games with us that marked his career: the derby with Inter in the Champions League semi-final, the Final in Manchester, the revenge mission in Athens against Liverpool, but also the debacle in Istanbul and the Juventus Scudetto that drowned in Perugia. It’s true that you learn from mistakes.”
