Real Madrid's Carlo Ancelotti makes Champions League history with 191st game in the competition as a coach

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has set a new record by taking charge against Manchester City in the semi-final second leg, his 191st UEFA Champions League game eclipsing the mark set by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Carlo Ancelotti has become the most experienced coach in UEFA Champions League history, with Real Madrid's semi-final defeat by Manchester City his 191st game* in the competition.

Already the only coach to have won the competition four times, the 63-year-old's 50th Champions League game in charge of Madrid ensures he eclipses the mark of 190 matches in the competition set by his friend and one-time sparring partner Sir Alex Ferguson. However, the Scot will retain the record for having coached the most Champions League games with one side – all 190 of his games having come during his time at Manchester United.

Ancelotti's 191 games have come with eight clubs: AC Milan, Chelsea, Bayern, Juventus, Paris, Parma, Real Madrid and Napoli. In addition to being the competition's most experienced coach, he is also one of only the select band who have won the Champions League as players and coaches, alongside Frank Rijkaard, Zinédine Zidane and Pep Guardiola.

Sir Alex will doubtless take losing this particular record with good grace. "Carlo Ancelotti is one of my good friends and also one of the best managers the game has seen," he said. "He is a great guy." Ancelotti, for his part, called Sir Alex "a legend with a capital 'L'".
