Patch postage or you are fired: How an ultimatum heralded the end of Carlo Ancelotti at PSG

Carlo Ancelotti experienced the first phase at PSG after the Qatar takeover. A sharp ultimatum finally caused an early end.

The year 2011 shared the club history of Paris Saint-Germain in half. In a time before the takeover by a Qatarian investment fund, when glamor, success and billions did not play a role and the club was more of a gray mouse in French football. And at a time afterwards when a European giant was to be created with the help of gigantic transfer sums, which, however, also found strange ways to fail in the Champions League.

One who experienced the beginnings of the "new" PSG up close was Carlo Ancelotti. At the end of 2011, the Italian took over the coaching position in the French capital of Antoine Kombouarue. At that time there was no reason for a change of coach, PSG led the table during the winter break. But Ancelotti, even then a highly decorated coach, probably promised more radiance - to match the new self -image of the club.

There was also a close relationship with sports director Leonardo, who took over the sporting management after taking over the Qatar. Leonardo had previously been a player at AC Milan under Ancelotti. "I liked the project," said Ancelotti later at _Movistar+,Why he had chosen PSG.

"We have changed the training structure, installed kitchens and so on. Because French players always come half an hour before training and then stay half an hour. I liked the project, but in the second year they weren't so happy with me "Ancelotti looked back. What happened?

Ancelotti was not optimal for the first six months, because although he took over PSG as the league leader, the club had to leave the championship title to the HSC Montpellier. Another major attack on the transfer market followed, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic. And accordingly, PSG marched through the league. However, in autumn 2012 there was a decisive crack in the relationship between Ancelotti and the club management, which finally culminated in Ancelotti's farewell in 2013.

In February I decided to go even though they wanted to extend with me, "he said. He said goodbye to the championship and a Champions League quarter-finals.
