“No, I don’t smoke cigars!” – Real Madrid Boss, Carlo Ancelotti
Carlo Ancelotti smoked a huge cigar while celebrating Real Madrid’s Liga title triumph with his players at the weekend. The los Blancos organised an open-top bus parade after the 4-0 win over Espanyol on Saturday, which saw Ancelotti’s men secure the club’s record-extending 35th domestic crown.
Ancelotti was right in the thick of the celebrations, and has gone viral on social media for posing with shades and a cigar in one picture.
Explaining to Movistar, the Real Madrid boss exclamied that the smoking photo was only for a pose.
“No, I don’t smoke cigars! It was only a photo with my friends. Yes, these players are my BEST friends”.
Madrid’s recent Liga success was extra special for Ancelotti, who is now the first manager in history to win league titles in all five of Europe’s major leagues.
The former Milan, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain boss has won a total of 22 major trophies over the course of his 25-year career, which puts him among the most successful coaches of all time.
