Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that he wants another managerial spell in England
Few can argue with the fact that Carlo Ancelotti is one of the greatest ever managers in modern football. Ancelotti enjoyed wonderful spells with AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, leading all the three clubs to some of the most memorable moments in their respective history.
Widely considered a blip in his managerial career, Ancelotti’s time at Premier League side Chelsea came to an unceremonious end in 2011 after he was sacked less than two hours after the last day of the domestic season.
Despite his acrimonious exit though, one should consider the fact that Ancelotti had led Chelsea to their first ever league and cup double during his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge and the Italian is still revered by the club faithful.
Following his departure from Real Madrid over the summer, Ancelotti has been taking an extended hiatus as he underwent a spinal operation and the 56-year old has revealed that he will not be returning to work before January.
Nonetheless, there has been a lot of speculation as regards to where Ancelotti will resume his illustrious managerial journey. Now to fuel the appetite of the fans of the Premier League, the former AC Milan boss has gone on to reveal that he would love to make a return back to England.
Ancelotti stated that the Premier League provides him with the ideal environment to manage but he added that he would only like to join a team which provides him with the right pressures.
Speaking to Corriere dello Sport, Ancelotti said, “Before I end my career I’d like to make another experience in England. Until few weeks ago I was terrified by the possibility of someone calling me, but now I’m close to coming back to action.
“Permitting nothing strange happens, I’ll be ready to come back in January. I’d like to coach in Premier League: it’s the ideal environment. It is a lot of work but it’s with the right pressures.”
Despite Ancelotti’s admission though, it has been claimed that the Italian is being lined up by Bayern Munich as the German giants prepare for the departure of Pep Guardiola at the end of the current campaign.
