Zinedine Zidane is the only manager to have won three consecutive Champions League titles …
The UEFA Champions League is considered the most coveted trophy in European football contested by the top clubs on the continent.
The Champions League in its current form and name started in 1992. Before that it was known as the European Cup which was introduced in 1955. Real Madrid is the most successful club in the history of the Champions League with a record of 13 titles to their name.
Los Merengues is followed by Serie A giants AC Milan who have won seven titles, followed by Bayern Munich and Liverpool who have six titles. The current reigning champions of the competition are Chelsea, who beat Manchester City 1-0 in the final of last season’s competition.
Only three drivers in the history of the competition have won the title three times. Legendary Liverpool manager Bob Paisely led the Reds to three Champions League victories in 1977, 1978 and 1981.
Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti won two Champions League titles with AC Milan in 2003 and 2007 and a third in 2014 with Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane, the former assistant to Ancelotti at Real Madrid, is the only manager in the history of the competition to have won three titles in a row from 2016 to 2018 with Real Madrid.
Apart from Ancelotti and Zidane, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and AS Roma’s Jose Mourinho are the only two active drivers to have won the Champions League title more than once. While Guardiola led Barcelona to victory in 2009 and 2011, Mourinho won it with FC Porto (2004) and Inter Milan (2010).
