CARLO ANCELOTTI named his best XI of players he has managed during his long career – but left out Cristiano Ronaldo in favour of Andriy Shevchenko.
The Everton boss, 61, has bossed the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Napoli in his illustrious career.
But somehow the Italian picked his favourite team of stars he’s coached during that time.
Ancelotti has won four league titles in his career, while earning three Champions League crowns – two of which were at AC Milan.
It’s little wonder the Italian has his best XI stacked with San Siro stars, either, with the Milan giants dominating European football for much of his reign.
Amongst the notable omissions is Cristiano Ronaldo – who played under Ancelotti at Real Madrid.
But who did make the cut?
MADE IN MILAN
In goal, Ancelotti has gone for Gianluigi Buffon, who he managed during his time at Parma, before the Italian stopper became a Juventus stalwart.
The defence reads like a real dream back-four, with Milan stars Cafu and Paolo Maldini joined by former Chelsea captain John Terry and PSG ace Thiago Silva.
In a star-studded midfield diamond, Andrea Pirlo and Kaka are the Milan stars at the base and the tip.
Zinedine Zidane, who Ancelotti managed at Juventus, and now-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard sit in the middle of the park.
