The likes of Kaka, Zidane, Pirlo and Lampard have been included in the list along with Chelsea flop Andriy Shevchenko.

Carlo Ancelotti spent two years as manager of Real Madrid where he helped the LaLiga giants to the decisive La Decima UEFA Champions League trophy towards the end of his spell. However, the Italian manager, now aged 60, opted to leave out Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo from the list of best XI players he has managed over the course of a long career. Ancelotti chose four Milan players in his playing XI, which included Ballon d'Or winner Andriy Shevchenko. The now-Everton manager has been a European journeyman, having worked at AC Milan, Juventus, PSG, Napoli, Real Madrid and Chelsea over the course of an illustrious career in the world of football, both as player and coach.
