As talks concerning Chelsea’s management planning to get a new handler continue to grow, erstwhile Madrid manager and also a former Chelsea boss, Carlo Ancelloti, has expressed his willingness to accept an offer to guide the Blues team once more, but he believes the club won’t be kicking Mourinho out of the Stamford Bridge anytime soon. With the Italian’s last wage said to be £170,000-A-Week, wages shouldn’t be a bit problem for Roman Abramovich.
The Italian veteran coach had a stint with the London club back in 2009 to 2011. His time saw Chelsea lift the F.A Cup and the Premier League in the 2010 season before he was sacked by Abramovich at the end of the following season due to poor results.
He was however offered a job at the Parc de Princes just after been shown the exit door by Chelsea, and he later worked at the Bernabeu where he won the La Decima for the La Liga giants, but a trophyless run at the end of last season say Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, give him the sack and the 56 year-old is currently on sabbatical after opting to stay away from a coaching job for a year.
Ancelloti was seen as a candidate for the Liverpool job after Brendan Rodgers was fired, but the Reds finally chose to hire German tactician, Jurgen Klopp as replacement for the sacked Northern Irish coach.
Despite the run of Chelsea’s poor results, Ancelloti is of the opinion that Mourinho is capable of turning around Chelsea’s fortunes, although he is also surprised by the results. The team won both the League Cup and the EPL title last season, but have already been eliminated from the League Cup this season by Stoke City, and defeat at the hands of the same club last weekend condemned them to 16th place on the League table, just 3 points above the relegation zone.
