Ancelotti devours Mourinho records

Ancelotti devours Mourinho records


When Carlo Ancelotti arrived to the Santiago Bernabeu back in the summer of 2013 he promised to become part of Real Madrid’s history. One year and a half later, nobody can deny he’s fulfilling his promise, especially Jose Mourinho. In less than seven days, the Italian has beaten two of the Portuguese’s records.

Last Saturday, in Los Blancos victory at La Rosaleda against Malaga, Ancelotti recorded a club record 16th consecutive victory in all competitions, beating the 15 wins that managers Miguel Munoz and Jose Mourinho had achieved.

However, Ancelotti’s achievements went even further a few days later following Los Merengues win against Cornella. Real beat the club’s record of consecutive victories in the Copa del Rey, held by Mourinho, who had got nine. Ancelotti made it ten, including a triumph over arch-rivals Barcelona in the final.

After stealing these two records from Mourinho, Ancelotti has other two marks in mind that are still held by the Portuguese. The record of total points and total goals in one season. Real Madrid recorded 100 points and 121 goals in 2012. Will Ancelotti be able to beat that?
