Xabi Alonso on Ancelotti:"A great man-manager with vast knowledge. He trusts his players and tries to keep everyone happy. He has great experience in the Champions League and he knows how to plan."
Paolo Maldini:“There is not a team in existence that Carlo cannot coach,”
1)doesn't give chance to youngsters:Handed Coman his league debut in France in 2013 while in charge of Paris St-Germain. The Italian threw Coman into the Ligue 1 fray at the tender age of 16, making him the youngest player in PSG history at the time.Having said Coman is "quick but also very intelligent".

2)Not tactically adept:During Real Madrid
Real players no longer slump around the pitch, hound the referee or make violent tackles. The equilibrio that Ancelotti sought to achieve was often out of reach for this Madrid side- highlighted by their disastrous loss in Seville. However, since that lowly performance, this Madrid side have carried themselves with a sense of purpose and passion that has been absent for the majority of this millennium for Los Blancos. With the use of a 4-4-2 formation, that allows for incredible defensive stability, Ancelotti has maximized the effect of speedy counterattacks. [source]
3)Doesn't learn language quickly:Whenever he has coached abroad, Ancelotti has quickly grasped the lingo in Spain, England or France; Germany will be no different.He has started taking German lessons already.
