Each football coach and especially, the winner coach has the most favorite and tested for years and decades game model. Its scheme can be periodically and slightly changed depending on existence necessary players in the team. However, the basis of this model remains invariable.
The most honored coach in the history of the Champions League, the Italian maestro Carlo Ancelotti did not become an exception. Let's remind that in 2014 after the final victory of Real Madrid in the Champions League, father Carlo, being then the coach of Real Madrid, for the third time has won the main club tournament of UEFA (Milan - 2003, 2007, Real Madrid - 2014). Thus Ancelotti has repeated achievement of legendary and long ago dead coach of Liverpool Bob Paisley (1977, 1978, 1981).
Still being the head coach of Milan (2001-2009), father Carlo was using the so-called fir-tree system. Visually this scheme is like this: 4-3-2-1. That is, it consists of four defenders, three midfielders, two attacking insiders and one center forward. Once at the heart of Rossoneri Dutch Clarence Seedorf and Brazilian Kaká were two irreplaceable insiders in Carlo Ancelotti's "fir-tree", and the former goal-scorer of Kiev Dynamo Andriy Shevchenko became the irreplaceable center forward at San Siro as well.
In summer 2016 Carlo Ancelotti has headed Bayern Munich. In philosophy and transfer policy of the German grandee there is no flip and flop policy in the transfer market, which are common for Barcelona and Real Madrid. The famous bosses of Allianz Arena from the very beginning know whom they need to sign for strengthening the team.
During current summer shoulder season instead of Xabier Alonso who has finished his playing career the former player of Olympique lyonnais Corentin Tolisso became the new holding midfielder of Bayern. At the same time Munich grandee at the behest of Carlo Ancelotti has signed in Real Madrid top goal scorer of the Brazilian FIFA World Cup 2014 James Rodríguez.
And if Corentin Tolisso at once became the irreplaceable holding midfielder of Bayern in the trio with Arturo Vidal and Sebastian Rudy, then the Colombian goal-scorer has to replace not young Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry. And now tactical positioning of players by father Carlo, his favorite "fir-tree" ia like this:
Neuer - Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels (Martinez), Alaba - Tolisso, Rudy, Vidal - Robben (Alcântara), Ribéry (James Rodríguez) - Lewandowski (Müller).
