Carlo Ancelotti has been informed by the UEFA that he needs to take a coaching exam before sitting on the Real Madrid bench.

Ancelotti is one of the most successful managers in the history of football, with 21 major trophies to his name.

But according to Corriere dello Sport, the Italian's coaching badges expired on December 31, 2021, and he will not be permitted to sit in the dugout of any of Madrid's games until he retakes the exam to renew his badges.

The report adds that the Spanish Federation do not think it is necessary for Ancelotti to undergo the exam, and have politely told UEFA they don't think one of the most successful coaches in the game needs to take the exam.

Ancelotti has gone on to manage 1200 games across England, Italy, Spain, France, and Germany, coaching the likes of Juventus, Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich.

The 62-year-old has won a record 21 trophies, including three Champions League trophies and domestic titles in Italy, England, France, Spain, and Germany.

Los Blancos are currently top of LaLiga, but only hold a four-point lead over Sevilla, while defending champions Atletico Madrid are 14 points off the top.

Madrid back in action on February 3 against Athletic Club in the Copa del Rey quarter-final and take on Ancelotti's former club, PSG, in the Champions League round of 16 next month.
