Ancelotti is one kind of a coach and his approach to players and to the game is shown by him in this book trough is very personal narrative.
He doesnt spare us of the details, no, the dirty game, the locker dramas, his personal and intimate opinion of the players and people involved in the business are all layed here trough the path of people and clubes from where he has passed.
He doesnt focus so much on tactics but more on the his observations of the phenomenon Worth every minute for me.

I am a big fan of Real Madrid CF, so, when he came to coach us after Mourinho left, I was interested in knowing more about him.

And it was Ancelotti, who bought calm and stability to the dressing room along with it La Decima.

This was tremendously entertaining. However, it was with great remorse that I read about one of my favorite coaches in the beautiful game. That is, Chelsea my dear club unceremoniously fired dear Carletto Ancelotti this year. I felt is was truly disgraceful and completely inappropriate. Had we left Carletto to do what Alex Ferguson has done in Manchester we would have clearly been a better club for it.
However, it appears Mr. Abramovich had no patience for a trophyless season and we’re starting This was tremendously entertaining. Abramovich had no patience for a trophyless season and we’re starting ordijary yet again. I’ll hope for the best with Andre Villas-Boas, but I will ah watching Carletto and wishing him well as he was a true genius of tactical formations and a true gentleman. Arrivederci e buona fortuna, Carletto. Jan 07, Yousef rated it it was amazing.
