Mourinho vs. Ancelotti



Two great managers today face-to-face in Milan city Derby, the colorful relation between The Special One and the Loyal Carletto:


Mourinho’s arrival to Italy made the headlines since his Italian Job begun; the war of words was always there (Ranieri, Ancelotti …etc).


Ancelotti known for his loyalty, admiring and dreaming of coaching Ivory Cost national team and targeting AS Roma job. Also Ancelotti enjoyed a successful professional playing career he played for Parma, AS Roma, and AC Milan winning several silverwares during his career (1976 to 1992) also participated in World Cups (1986 and 1990) with Italy.

While Mourinho didn’t have a professional playing career, but his brilliant coaching career make him one of the best since the beginning of the century and a candidate to be a legendary football manager.


Ancelotti biggest hit on Mourinho was questioning the Portuguese ability to manage a club like AC Milan, back on May 2008 Carletto said:


Is Mourinho up for my job? …….he’s never played football; he wouldn’t be capable of shooting on goal


But Mourinho replied:

I think Ancelotti is forgetting that one of Milan’s most legendary managers, Arrigo Sacchi, never played to any higher standard than me. And my dentist is great, even though he’s never had a toothache…?
