Ancelotti's Tactical Symphony

Behind the Scenes with Guillem Balague: Davide Ancelotti's Key Role in Real Madrid's Success

The attacking prowess displayed by


on the field is not solely orchestrated by their manager, Ancelotti, as recent insights have unveiled. Often criticized for being primarily a skilled man-manager rather than a tactical mastermind, Ancelotti delegates much of the training responsibilities to his son, Davide, according to journalist Guillem Balague.

Balague shared this revelation on the Euro Leagues podcast, shedding light on Ancelotti's management approach. He affirmed that Ancelotti's involvement in tactics is limited, with Davide, serving as his assistant manager, taking charge of much of the week's training sessions. Ancelotti's instructions to Davide typically involve key player selections and strategic decisions. Balague emphasized that every decision made and the final lineup selected is credited to Ancelotti, showcasing the effectiveness of their collaborative process.

Despite Ancelotti's hands-off approach in day-to-day operations, his tactical acumen has positioned Los Blancos for continued success. Currently topping La Liga and holding a 1-0 advantage in their Champions League round of 16 tie, Madrid looks poised for another triumphant year under Ancelotti's strategic guidance. The upcoming matches against Sevilla, Valencia, and RB Leipzig will further test Madrid's mettle and Ancelotti's leadership.
