The Italian was the last coach to win the Copa del Rey with the white team. Since the 2013-2014 season he has been a pending issue.

The situation

Madrid never had the Copa del Rey as a priority. We can see it reflected in the results of the last few seasons (he has not won the cup title since the 2013-2014 season) . He only managed the trophy 15 times in the last 111 years. The Madrid entity has focused on its main titles to emerge clearly towards dominance of the European continent (35 Leagues and 14 Champions) , although this season will be different: Ancelotti wants the Cup. Carletto was the last white coach to win the Copa del Rey. An epic ride by Bale down the left wing at the Mestalla, in his famous duel with Bartra, was decisive in becoming champion (1-2) against Barça. On April 17, 2014 , a marked day for all merengue fans, they achieved their nineteenth national title . Three years earlier, more specifically in the 2010-2011 season, Mourinho’s Madrid, again at Mestalla, broke a drought of titles that had haunted them since the Spanish Super Cup (achieved on August 24, 2008 against Valencia). A header from Cristiano in the first part of extra time would give the title, against all odds, to the team led by the Portuguese against Guardiola’s Barça (0-1).With this achievement he managed to cut a streak of 18 consecutive years without being able to win the title of His Majesty The King (2-0 victory against Zaragoza in the 1992-1993 season). These were the last two Real Madrid cup titles to date. From there, stumble after stumble: In the 2014-2015 season, Atlético de Madrid defeated the Madrid team when Fernando Torres returned to the mattress club ; a year later, the famous improper alignment against Cádiz (Cheryshev, sanctioned, was part of the starting eleven in the old Ramón de Carranza) prevented Real Madrid from continuing with a firm step in the competition after their victory against the Andalusian team (1- 3); later, Celta in 2016-2017 and Leganés in the 2017-2018 academic year , were in charge of eliminating the merengue club from the KO tournament; 

The details 

a year before the arrival of the new format in the Copa del Rey,the last team that would eliminate Madrid in two legs would be Barcelona, thus taking revenge for the last two finals lost against the white entity; after the arrival of the innovative Cup format (qualifiers to a match until reaching the semifinals), Real Sociedad in 2019-2020, the Alcoyano debacle in 2020-2021 and, finally, Athletic in San Mamés, were in charge to put an end to the merengue club’s participation in the Copa del Rey. This course will be totally different: Ancelotti wants to fight for the Cup to be eligible for a possible Sextet at the end of the course. If he succeeds, he would join Barça (2009) and Bayer Munich (2020) as the only teams to have been able to win six different competitions in a natural season. The Cup will speak… only thing we have to do at this point is to wait and see what will happen.
