Former Chelsea manager eyes return to Premier League

Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he is eager to stay in England and manage another Premier League club.

The former Chelsea boss was sacked from his job at the end of last season, in which was his only his second year as manager, even though he had previously led the Blues to a domestic double in the previous season.

Ancelotti told BBC Radio 5 live: “If it is possible to find another club here, I would like to stay in England as I love the country and the players.

“The Premier League is the best campaign in Europe.”
Following their 1-0 defeat to Everton on the final day of the 2010-11 season, even though Ancelotti’s deal still had one remaining year.

Chelsea finished the season runners-up to title-winners Manchester United, however this was overshadowed by earlier than expected eliminations from the Champions League, F.A Cup and League Cup.
Ancelotti added: “I would like to stay here if I could find a club for next season. I don’t want to name them, I want to respect them – but if I can’t find a solution then I’ll go to another country.

“I want to manage a team or club that has ambition.”

Ancelotti was questioned whether he would ever manage a Manchester team, he replied with: “Why not a Manchester team? But I don’t want to wait another 25 years.”
And even though his Chelsea career was cut short, the former AC Milan and Juventus boss added that he holds no hard feelings against his former employers.

He said: “Roman Abramovich loves football and he is very close to the club, fans and players. He gave me fantastic support. He doesn’t like to be front page of newspapers but he is a fantastic owner.”
