Madrid: Carlo Ancelotti revealed that Real Madrid's manager Zinedine Zidane changed the way he thought about the game, prompting a tactical shift that altered the course of his coaching career.
The Italian manager took charge of Serie A champions Juventus in 1999, intent on using his preferred 4-4-2 formation.
The formation change failed to yield any trophies. But Ancelotti's 4-3-1-2 formation proved incredibly successful with his next club, AC Milan.
"The first time that I met Zidane was in the first year in Juventus and I found a fantastic player," Ancelotti was quoted as saying by goal.com.
