3. Carlo Ancelotti the coach

Put plainly, Ancelotti can do everything. Across his 24-year career, he has managed nine clubs, including Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Napoli. He has worked with some of the greatest superstars on the planet. He has won three Champions League titles and five league titles, including one with Chelsea in the 2009-10 season, in which he led the first Premier League team to score more than 100 goals in a season. He is a manager of extreme and proven quality.

He also has an incredible track record with players on an individual level. He is commonly credited for the breakthroughs of Angel Di Maria and Isco at Real Madrid, playing the former at left-centre midfield, where he excelled, and signing the latter for £23 million. He has contributed greatly to the rise of Fabian Ruiz in the Napoli squad. He is an excellent manager of egos, which will be crucial in an Arsenal squad full of overpaid, underperforming superstar talent.

You don’t just earn those credentials, you don’t win three Champions Leagues, you don’t build some of the greatest teams of the past 20 years, because you have gotten lucky. Ancelotti has exhibited a tactical style which has stood the test of time, and now it is time to bring it to the Emirates.
