Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by Bayern Munich last week: the Italian coach didn’t meet the club expectations for the beginning of this season and ex Bavarian manager Jupp Heynckes, who won the treble with the German side in 2013, was appointed to take of the team until the end of the season.
Speaking about his experience in Germany and about his future Ancelotti revealed in which country he’s not keen to coach next:
“Bayern Munich belong to the past. Sometimes it can happen to be sacked, there is nothing to be sorry for. I’ve always respected every player I’ve coached. As a manager I have to play 11 players and bench seven of them. It is up to the player and to the club to accept the manager’s decision.”
“I don’t know if I will return to Serie A or try another experience abroad. For sure I am not going to train in China.”
AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella has recently – jokingly – revealed that Ancelotti can now become his assistant. Here’s how Ancelotti replied: “He could my assistant and vice-versa. We could coach one game each, we only have to find a team that will allow us to do it.”
Montella is on the brink of being sacked after 3 defeats in the first 7 Serie A games of the season, and next game will be the derby against Inter on Sunday 15, when the Italian championship will restart after international break.
Ancelotti was the first name the media mentioned as a possible Montella replacement, but the former Blues boss claimed he has no intention to coach again during the current season:
“I will remain on holiday for the next ten months, I don’t want to take any other job before June. I respect Montella, Di Francesco and Ventura, I hope they will win all the games until the end of the season. I still want to coach club teams not national teams.”
