Real Madrid’s Dynamic Duo: Florentino and Ancelotti Etch Their Names in Glory

HomeSports NewsReal Madrid's Dynamic Duo: Florentino and Ancelotti Etch Their Names in Glory

Florentino has 34 titles compared to Bernabéu’s 33. Ancelotti has been a Real Madrid player for 12 years, one more than Zidane and two shy of Miguel Muñoz’s record.

La Liga 36 marks several milestones in Real Madrid’s record and dismantles an aphorism, the one that says that second halves were never good. For Carlo Ancelotti and Florentino Pérez, and therefore for the white club, this second stage of the Italian coach is being unbeatable. This League is their 12th title together and represents the 34th of Florentino’s presidency , with which he has surpassed Santiago Bernabéu in the club’s record. More than a third of the titles that Florentino has won have been with Reggiolo on the bench. A couple that last Christmas renewed their commitment until June 2026.

There has not been a season in which Ancelotti has not won a title in the Bernabéu showcases. Carletto was precisely the initiator of this glorious cycle (24 titles in 11 seasons) for the whites , with the Décima won against Atlético in Lisbon after twelve years of long-awaited wait. It was preceded by the Copa del Rey won weeks before with that iconic goal by Bale against Barça at Mestalla. Before his goodbye, he won a European Super Cup and a Club World Cup.

Zidane’s second goodbye (between the Frenchman and Ancelotti they have directed 548 of Madrid’s last 619 games) threatened to return to the white bench some turbulence that it had already suffered after the previous departures of both. The Madrid ship found calm in Ancelotti, an endless haul of titles and new pages in the successful history of Madrid, Ancelotti and Florentino .

The president became the most successful president in the club’s history on Saturday . 6 European Cups, 7 Leagues, 1 Intercontinental Cup and 5 Club World Cups, 5 European Super Cups, 3 Copas del Rey and 7 Spanish Super Cups for a total of 34 titles. He leaves behind the 33 achieved by Santiago Bernabéu, the historic president (1943-1978) whose master lines have served as inspiration for Florentino himself . “Bernabéu was a pioneer and a visionary who understood that the construction of the best stadium in the world and the concentration of the best players were the perfect formula to forge the universal icon that Real Madrid is today,” Florentino said of him in the last Assembly. .

Florentino Pérez’s record as president of Real Madrid (34 titles)

  • 6 Champions: 2021-22, 2017-18, 2016-17, 2015-16, 2013-14 and 2001-02.
  • 7 Leagues: 2023-24, 2021-22, 2019-20, 2016-17, 2011-12, 2002-03 and 2000-01.
  • 3 Copas del Rey: 2022-23, 2013-14 and 2010-11.
  • 1 Intercontinental Cup: 2002-03.
  • 5 Club World Cups: 2022-23, 2018-19, 2017-18, 2016-17 and 2014-15.
  • 5 European Super Cups: 2022-23, 2017-18, 2016-17, 2014-15 and 2002-03.
  • 7 Spanish Super Cups: 2023-24, 2021-22, 2019-20, 2017-18, 2012-13, 2003-04 and 2001-02.

At a time when neither of the two Super Cups existed and the Intercontinental did not appear until the fifth European Cup, the Bernabéu’s record was based, in addition to the 6 European Cups, on its 12 Leagues . He also held 1 Intercontinental Cup, 6 Spanish Cups, 2 Latin Cups and 2 Small World Cups. The germ to be the Best Club of the 20th Century.

Since his return, Ancelotti has not stopped breaking records. Personally, at this stage he has become the first (and at the moment, only) coach to win four European Cups, to conquer the five major European leagues and to reach 200 matches coached in the Champions League . In the history of Real Madrid he is already the second coach in games (285), victories (205) and titles (12). Three records in which he has surpassed Zidane (263 games, 172 wins and 11 titles). Ancelotti boasts a collection of titles that he has completed twice: the coach has won each of the competitions in which Madrid competes twice .

Carlo Ancelotti’s achievements as coach of Real Madrid

  • 2 Champions: 2021-22 and 2013-14.
  • 2 Leagues: 2023-24 and 2021-22.
  • 2 Copas del Rey: 2022-23 and 2013-14.
  • 2 Club World Cups: 2022-23 and 2014-15.
  • 2 European Super Cups: 2022-23 and 2014-15.
  • 2 Spanish Super Cups: 2023-24 and 2021-22.

“The mythical, the legend Miguel Muñoz, is quite close,” Ancelotti recognized as champion . He is the only one Carletto has ahead of him. Muñoz directed 605 games, won 357 and won 14 titles. Ancelotti has two seasons and the rest of this ahead of him to surpass Muñoz in the list of winners and write new pages together with Florentino in the insatiable history of Real Madrid.

Wembley and the challenge of seven titles

Madrid is so focused on conquering the 15th that the celebration of the League remained in the background, postponed until this coming Sunday . All efforts and thoughts are focused on overcoming the tie against Bayern and fighting for the Orejona in the final at Wembley . A title that, in addition to expanding the white legend, would open the doors for Madrid to compete for seven titles next season, something unprecedented.

Ancelotti’s team has already qualified for five competitions in 2024-25 : League, Champions League (which has a new format), Copa del Rey, Spanish Super Cup and the new Club World Cup, which runs from June 15 to July 13, 2025. will hold the first edition of its new quadrennial format in the United States with 32 teams. Winning the Champions League would give them the opportunity to compete in two other tournaments: the European Super Cup and the reborn Intercontinental Cup , which will maintain the essence of the annual Club World Cup. A new and succulent challenge.
