CARLO ANCELOTTI has doubled down on retiring when he departs Real Madrid.

The legendary Italian reckons he can’t surpass his recent achievements after 30 years as a boss.

He didn’t quite rule out signing a new Real deal but confirmed the Spanish giants will be his last club.

Ancelotti told Il Messagero: “This stage at Madrid will bring an end to my career. After Real Madrid, I will retire.

“Real Madrid is at the very top of football.

“It makes sense to call it a day after this experience.”

No other manager has won Europe’s big five leagues.

But he added: “Twenty four titles in my career? The truth is that these numbers do not matter to me.”

After winning Serie A with Roma in 1983, he did it twice at AC Milan.

He helped Chelsea to the Premier League and FA Cup double in 2010.

And his three other elite league crowns came once apiece with PSG, Real and Bayern Munich.

He only missed out on the big domestic prize with his first two clubs Reggiana and Parma, plus Juventus and Everton.

But last season’s 1-0 win over Liverpool – to clinch his second Champions League success for Real – was perhaps the pinnacle.

Los Blancos’ unflinching defending and counter-attacking class saw off PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City in the KO stages.

Vinicius then sunk Jurgen Klopp’s Reds, again on the break, to complete an against-the-odds triple triple over the Prem’s top three clubs
