Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked as manager of Real Madrid after just two seasons in charge of the Spanish Club which produced 4 trophies.
The former AC Milan coach led the Spanish club to victory in the Spanish Cup, Club World Cup and their 10th UEFA Champions League trophy last season but was sacked after failing to win a major trophy this season.
Speaking at a news conference, Real Madrid club President, Florentino Perez made the announcement despite admitting it was a hard decision.
‘It had not been an easy decision, what did Ancelotti do wrong? I don’t know, the demands here at Real Madrid are very high.’
Real Madrid will announce their next coach next week with Rafael Benitez linked as the favourite for the job at the capital club.
