The legendary Italian manager, who parted ways with Real Madrid earlier this year, has stated that he will be looking for a new job at the end of the season and would prefer the English Premier League.
Three-time UEFA Champions League winning manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has managed the biggest clubs around Europe including AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea FC, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, and has tasted Premier League glory in his first season in charge of Chelsea FC, winning both the league and the F.A. Cup.
“The most important thing is to start; to find a club with a good project and be competitive. If it’s in England, it’s better.” Ancelotti told BBC Radio 5 Live, according to goal.com.
“I will stay out until the end of the season and try to find another club next season. Not just in England, it can be in another country, but my idea is not to start now,” he added.
Ancelotti also spoke about his former club Chelsea FC and their current struggles in the league as they find themselves in 16th place after 12 games.
“Chelsea are used to competing at the top level. They have lost a little bit of confidence in their play and arrived at bad results. Slowly they can move on from this situation,” he said.
He also extended his support to present Blues’ manager, Jose Mourinho: “Mourinho is the best person to manage this because he is the one involved, he knows the situation and the condition of the players and the club took the right decision to stay with Mourinho.”
. The man for the job
Carlo Ancelotti is one of the best managers around and his sacking from Real Madrid was bizarre, considering that he led them to the Champions League trophy the previous season and created a new Spanish record of 22 consecutive victories in all competitions from September to December last year.
He has been heavily linked with former club Chelsea FC — with Mourinho under mounting pressure after the Blues’ disastrous start — but would be a welcome addition to any of the top sides in England. The Premier League is as unpredictable as it gets, and with clubs like Manchester City and Manchester United voicing concerns over their managers, you never know where Ancelotti might end up.
