Prior to his retirement, Carlo Ancelotti wants to return in the English Premier League.
Ancelotti is on a sabbatical in his wife’s native Vancouver after being dismissed as Real Madrid’s coach. In his prior stint in EPL, Ancelotti managed Chelsea for two years and clinched the title in the first season.
“The vacation will continue at least until the end of the year. Then I’ll start again,” he said in an interview with Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
“Where will I go? Where they call me. I will talk, evaluate and decide. Up until a few weeks ago I was scared someone would call, but now I feel like I’m getting closer to that comeback.”
The Italian also added that he would like to back to the Premier League, and Manchester United is the first choice in this regard.
“You can work with the right amount of pressure, the necessary detachment and calm. Before I quit, I’d like to have another experience in England.
“In a while I must start to think about retirement, let’s say in five or six years. When I started out at Reggiana, I’d promised myself to work five or six years and that would be it. That was 25 years ago and I’m still going.”
Ancelotti has three champions league title to his credit.
