UEFA Champions League winners as a player and as coach.




Seven men have won the European Cup as player and coach; Josep Guardiola can now match Carlo Ancelotti by leading multiple clubs to glory.



Zinédine Zidane became only the seventh man to win the European Cup as a player and coach when he led Real Madrid to UEFA Champions League glory in 2015/16.


The sixth name on that list was Josep Guardiola, a champion as player and coach with Barcelona. And if Manchester City can beat Chelsea in the Istanbul final, Guardiola will join Carlo Ancelotti in having coached multiple clubs to victory having also tasted success as a player.
