Ancelotti had previously won the gold medal in 2007 with AC Milan but was a clear winner with Real Madrid in the final world-wide counting of the 18th IFFHS contest.
Under Ancelotti’s guidance, Real Madrid enjoyed a stellar year as winners of the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA World Championship.
