UEFA ask Ancelotti to sit coaching exam after 21 trophies

Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti is one of the most successful coaches in the history of club management and currently in charge of Real Madrid, but UEFA want him to take an exam before he can sit on the bench again.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Ancelotti’s coaching badges expired on December 31, 2021.

That means UEFA sent a letter warning the 62-year-old Italian would have to sit an exam and be given the all-clear before his certification is renewed.

Between Milan, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, Ancelotti has lifted 21 different trophies at club level as a coach.

That includes three editions of the Champions League, the League titles in Italy, France and England, two Club World Cups and only last month the Spanish Supercup with Real Madrid.

The report claims the Spanish Federation have contacted UEFA to politely suggest putting Ancelotti through an examination process after 1,200 games is going to make all involved look rather silly.

  1. Asking a Supreme Court Judge to sit to the bar exams. UEFA have many cards up their sleeves to ridicule Coach’s and players. They started with a b9gus fixture to ensure that Real Madrid loose Mbappe by messing their UCL fixtures and now go an d sit to a Coachs licence. What happens if he fails the exams????

  2. UEFA and it’s untruthful and unprofessional attitude’s, UEFA champions league draw, other stuff and now this, what’s uefa up to this time? Think it’s high time people start talking

  3. I don’t know how this exam works, but if it includes new rules and updates, surely everyone must participate no matter what. Just read Roma hired a referee to help them with VAR rules. so surely updates are necessary.
    Lewis Hamilton was a good example. But It’s not about seeing if he can drive a car, rather you must renew your driving license to prove you are in the right condition to drive every 5 to 10 years.
    Most regulations look useless but not as useless in reality when seeing stats for safety and legal reasons.
    Again, I have no clue what this coaching exam is about but “A true master is an eternal student”. not a big deal for Ancelotti

  4. this is about super league. its because perez and RM supported super league and on bad term with UEFA chief ceferin.

    Ceferin want to make life difficult for perez and RM. its nothing to do with ancelotti or italy. because RM one of 3 teams who supported super league

  5. Just to be clear – UEFA are asking for his certification to be renewed. Lots of professions do it – it’s called CPD (continued professional development) It may seem a bit bizarre for such a successful practitioner – but it’s not uncommon in many fields.

  6. @feroli yes, its not uncommon to renewed license but usually that process only giving few documents and not taking any exam anymore. UEFA demand ancelotti to take exam test, that really unusual especially given Ancelotti is one most renowned football coach.
    this is about super league, they want to make life difficult for RM and perez.

  7. Arguably if all coaches require to be certified at some time intervals, one would suppose that the rule applies to everyone. In that case also for Ancelloti. If someone can proove with documents (lack) that uefa have failed to send similat re-certification notices to other coaches and are just pestering Ancelloti, tgen obvioult he can complain. If he complains and there is proof or uefa “preferential” treatment or missconduct then he can always take them to cas. So i do not understand what the fuss is all about!
