Ancelotti names ideal XI

Carlo Ancelotti has chosen the all-time XI of players he’s coached, which is very heavy on Serie A stars, but excludes Cristiano Ronaldo.

The current Everton manager has worked all over Europe, winning silverware in Italy, Spain, England, Germany and France.

There’s a lot of his Milan side in the XI picked by Ancelotti, as published in The Sun, including Marcos Cafu, Paolo Maldini, Andrea Pirlo, Ricky Kaka and Andriy Shevchenko.

Former San Siro stalwards Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were in his PSG squad.

It’s because of the Rossoneri and Ibra upfront that Ancelotti has left out a big name, his Real Madrid star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Zinedine Zidane and Gianluigi Buffon worked with Ancelotti at Juventus, while Chelsea men Frank Lampard and John Terry also make the cut.

Ancelotti’s Best XI: Buffon; Cafu, Thiago Silva, Terry, Maldini; Lampard, Pirlo, Zidane; Kaka; Shevchenko, Ibrahimovic
