Though we are 2/3rds Arsenal here, the top brass bleeds blue. In his honor, we celebrate the achievement of Carlo Ancelotti today.
For the first time in English, Ancelotti’s autobiography, Carlo Ancelotti: The Beautiful Games of an Ordinary Genius, released yesterday. The book offers candid insight on the difference between the Italian and English games. Ancelotti’s playing days at Parma, Roma and Milan are well covered, as are his recent managerial triumphs. Friend, and former teammate, Paolo Maldini offers the forward.
All of Ancelotti’s royalties from the book go to the Fondazione Stefano Borgonovo, a charitable foundation dedicated to finding a cure for Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Carlo Ancelotti: The Beautiful Games of an Ordinary Genius, by Carlo Ancelotti with Alessandro Aliciato, Rizzoli New York, 2010.
