“The number one? Due to his human and technical quality, Ancelotti has won more victories than anyone else and in all championships, but how can you put him ahead of Lippi, Conte or Allegri? They are different. Playing well or not: who he wins,” said former player and current coach Andrea Pirlo to the Italian newspaper Gazzeta dello Sport.
Pirlo was coached by all the aforementioned coaches and Carlo Ancelotti was the coach with whom he worked the most. There were 327 games under the command of the Italian in the Milanhaving won two Champions Leaguesone Club World Cup it is a Italian Championship.
With the shirt of Juventus, Pirlo was coached by both Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri. There were 115 games with Conte and 58 with Allegri, before the midfielder left the Old Lady for New York City, in the United States in 2015. Already under the command of the world champion with Italy, Marcello Lippi, there were only two games.
