Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti who was linked with a potential Mourinho’s replacement at Chelsea has denied all the rumours and praised the Special One calling him the ideal man for the job. What is interesting, the Italian coach did not rule out a return to the Premier League in the near future but definitely not at Stamford Bridge.
Ancelotti told the Evening Standard:
“Me at Chelsea? That’s just talk. Mourinho has difficulties, it’s true but Chelsea have confirmed Mourinho’s position. Chelsea have the perfect coach to solve problems,”
”Where do I see myself? In football you have to be ready to go anywhere. I felt fantastic abroad and would prefer to continue abroad,”
”The English league has always fascinated me a lot because it was good when I was there but I’m willing to go anywhere.”
