Well he’s got to be somebody’s! And it has been reported that Carlo is setting his sights on a return to the Premiership with Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham all on the Italian’s radar.
The former Chelsea boss, 52, has been out of management since the end of last season after being sacked by Roman Abramovich and is now looking to get back into action with the trio in tact. The Italian admitted that he has a ‘strong will to remain in England’ but would only ‘consider top clubs like Liverpool and Tottenham’ the Italian told La Repubblica newspaper on Monday.
Arsenal would be the ideal club in the eyes of Ancelotti, as Wenger is increasingly under pressure as each game passes on. Its been 6 years since they won the 2005 FA Cup and you wonder how many of Wenger’s starting 11 to date, would even get a look in to the team filled with the likes of Patrick Viera, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp to name a few. Its been a torrid time for Wenger during these past 6 years and now Wenger finally looks like a defeated man. With his job never being under such scrutiny, is it time to step down and let someone else take charge?
Ancelotti admitted Wenger is “wobbling” so would the former Chelsea boss be the ideal candidate if Wenger would be replaced?
With Capello being replaced by an Englishmen after Euro 2012 and Tottenham Boss Harry Redknapp looking the clear favourites by bookies to replace the Italian, can Ancelotti fill the role left by Harry, if he decided to take the England job? Ancelotti hinted at the possibility of managing Tottenham after Redknapp might step down for the England job by saying “within a few months Capello’s place with the national team will go to an Englishman and free up a place at a club.”
Whether this is true or not and Ancelotti does take the job of Arsenal or Tottenham, he would definitely be bringing a different style and manner to either club has been used to. No-one can question Ancelotti’s credentials, this is a man who is no stranger to winning trophies having won the premier league and FA Cup during is first spell at Chelsea and countless trophies with the likes of Milan and Juventus including the 2007 Champions League over Liverpool. It would be a credit to any club to have such a respected figure manage their club.
