Real Madrid owes a great deal to their star players as they are in pole position to secure a historic double this season.

However, it goes without saying, that none of the club’s success would have transpired without coach Carlo Ancelotti stoically guiding his team from the sidelines.

His decades of experience are proving to be quite handy for the Los Blancos, and under his mentorship, Davide Ancelotti is starting to develop into a promising coach with a keen eye for the game.

Now, according to RMC Sport, Davide Ancelotti, the 34-year-old son of Carlo Ancelotti and assistant at Real Madrid, is being considered by French club Reims to take over as head coach.

Reims is making this move in an effort to strengthen their coaching staff and plan for the forthcoming campaign, considering Will Still, their coach, departed the team by mutual consent.

Following the Champions League final, talks are expected to pick up steam, indicating Reims’ desire to promote Davide to a leadership position.

The Real Madrid assistant manager has had the privilege of working alongside one of the best in the business but in addition to acting as Carlo’s understudy, Davide has also proven to be a key member of the coaching staff.

He is well-connected with the players and is recognized for assisting his father in technologically driven training techniques and adapting to diverse cultures.

Davide played a key role in Real Madrid’s win over Bayern Munich

Indeed, reports have mentioned that when Carlo Ancelotti asked to shake things up, almost instantly, Davide suggested Joselu, knowing he was the man for the moment.

The 34-year-old striker was promptly called from his warm-up and brought onto the field. Davide stood proven with Joselu’s late heroics sealing a dramatic victory for the Merengues.

Owing to his work at Real Madrid, it is understandable that foreign teams are willing to bet on Davide Ancelotti.

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
