Carlo Ancelotti promised a heady mix of spectacular football and trophies when he took over at Real Madrid, the holy grail for coaches handed the reins of the world's richest club by income.Obsessed with winning what is known as the "la decima" (the 10th), Real President Florentino Perez lured Ancelotti from Paris St. Germain following the ignominious exit of Jose Mourinho, three years before the end of his contract, after a season without major silverware.With one quizzical eyebrow almost perpetually raised, Ancelotti deals with even the most brainless of media questions with a gruff charm and has been far more amenable to interviews than Mourinho, who rarely spoke outside his obligatory media commitments.Perhaps one of Ancelotti's most impressive achievements is the way he has united a dressing room that became bitterly divided under Mourinho. A tough midfielder with clubs including AS Roma and AC Milan, Ancelotti, now 54, is one of only six people who have been European club champion as player and coach.
