Former Chelsea boss hints at return to club management

Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that his goal is to get back into club management.

The Italian coach has been heavily linked with the Arsenal job or a return to Stamford Bridge in recent months, and has made no secret of his love of living in London.

Ancelotti is no stranger to the Premier League, having won the league and cup double with Chelsea in 2010.

He has been out of work since he was sacked by German giants Bayern Munich last September. Ancelotti remains one of Europes most highly rated coaches however, having successfully managed some of Europes biggest clubs including Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan and PSG.

The 58-year-old’s record of winning the Champions League with four different clubs, means he will always be in contention for jobs at elite level clubs.

He has also been reported to be on the shortlist to coach the Italian national team – along with with current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte – but Ancelotti hinted that he would rather the day-to-day life of a club manager than the part-time nature of an international manager.

“‘My answer is this: the federation, now with the help of Coni (Italian Olympic Committee), must create its own new structure, after which it will make the decision.

“I can’t make a decision now. It needs clarity, then you can think about it, even if my goal is still to train a club team.” He said.
