Goal, the world’s largest digital football brand, is delighted to announce the signing of Carlo Ancelotti as lead columnist for its 2015-16 Uefa Champions League coverage.
The 56-year-old has enjoyed a glittering footballing career spanning almost 40 years. As a player, he was a cultured midfielder in Arrigo Sacchi’s great AC Milan side that won two European Cups, while he also claimed the Scudetto with Roma.
As a coach, he has led Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid to numerous trophies, including three more Champions League titles.
He departed the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of last season – and his next big job is as a columnist for Goal.
“I love the fact that, through Goal, I can remain in the world of football and continue to be in contact with so many fans around the globe,” Ancelotti says.
“This allows me to stay in touch with my world and provide my opinion on football. That is what I love.
“Football is a wonderful world, it’s my world and will still be my world for a long, long time. This is a great way for me to stay involved even without a team.”
As a Goal columnist, Carlo will provide his expertise and insight on this season’s Champions League through an exclusive series of columns and videos.
