In mild-mannered Italian Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez may finally have found the man capable of sculpting his expensively assembled squad into a unit capable of delivering an elusive tenth European crown.However, not even Ancelotti's immediate predecessor Jose Mourinho, who was sent packing after three divisive years in charge, could deliver what Perez so desperately wants – the tenth crown, known in Spain as the "decima".The victory was all the sweeter as Bayern, who knocked Real out at the same stage two years ago, are now coached by Pep Guardiola, who had four trophy-laden years in charge at Real's bitter rivals Barcelona between 2008 and 2012 .Perhaps more importantly, Ancelotti has returned harmony to the dressing room in the wake of the Mourinho years, when the Portuguese manager sidelined captain and goalkeeper Iker Casillas and fell out with key figures like Ronaldo and Ramos.
