3. Juventus (1999–2001)

Having failed to replicate his form in the following season for Parma, leaving the club without Champions League football, Juventus decided to hire the Italian as their manager.

It was at Juventus that Carlo Ancelotti was able to clinch his first trophy ever since he started out as a manager. Although he had several top-name players at his disposal during his time at Juventus, he only managed to win the Intertoto Cup. 

It can be recalled that one of his worst records at the club was when he squandered a 5-points lead with 3 games left to win the Serie A title for the Old Ladies.

After failing to win Serie A with Juventus, Carlo Ancelotti was discharged from his duties by the Turin club before getting an offer from AC Milan. Apart from his time at Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti probably enjoyed his best years at AC Milan having managed the club for about eight years. 

During his time at the club, he managed to lead a struggling AC Milan squad to the UEFA Champions League, including their 2002/03 UEFA Champions League win against his former Juventus side.

At AC Milan, he managed to win the Coppa Italia. However, one of his worst memories at the club will certainly include their defeat to Liverpool in the 2005/06 UEFA Champions League final.

In 2009, Carlo Ancelotti decided to call it quits at AC Milan. Having dismissed Dutch manager, Guus Hiddink, former Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich decided to let him take charge at the club.

Although his time at the club did not really go as expected, despite the Italian managing the London side for about three years, he still managed to keep some records and win some trophies with the English side. 

He became the first Italian manager to win the English Premier League title. He also managed to win a few other domestic trophies including a Community shield, and an FA Cup.

Following his exit from Chelsea after being sacked by former Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, for failing to get a space in the UEFA Champions League, Carlo Ancelotti decided to move to Paris Saint-Germain.

7. Real Madrid (2013–2015)

Having stayed at Paris Saint-Germain for a while, Carlo Ancelotti decided to leave the club so he can join Real Madrid, having to replace José Mourinho.

On December 2015, immediately after Pep Guardiola left the Bavarians, Carlo Ancelotti was chosen by the German outfit as the Spaniard’s replacement.

And although he won the 2016-2017 Bundesliga and the two DFL-Supercups, his time at the German side was full of struggles, and this is one of the reasons he had a short stay at the club.

9. Napoli (2018-2019)

Right after Maurizio Sarri was released by the Italian side, Napoli, the club decided to bring in Carlo Ancelotti as a replacement. The Italians were hoping that the Italian tactician would be able to continue in the fine form Maurizio Sarri had left off.

However, this was not the case as they sacked him the following year, due to some internal rift. The Italian failed to win a trophy for Napoli throughout his stay at the club.

10. Everton (2019-2021)

After being relieved of his managerial duties at Napoli after a rift with the club management, Carlo Ancelotti was handed a four-and-a-half-year contract by Merseyside club, Everton.

During his stay at the club, the Everton board began to put in some reinforcements to help the Italian build the squad only to be dumped before the start of the 2021/22 league season when Real Madrid came calling. 

During his stay at the club, Carlo Ancelotti decided to resign his former player, “James Rodríguez” who had played with him at Real Madrid and Bayern, and Allan who had played with him at Napoli.
