Ancelotti eyes Premier League return

Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he wants to return to manage in the Premier League.

The 56-year-old Italian, who has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, was strongly linked with the Liverpool job before Jurgen Klopp took over. More recently he has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge with pressure continuing to mount on Jose Mourinho due to Chelsea's poor start to the season.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Ancelotti said how he would not be returning to management until next season however.

"I had a fantastic experience in France and Spain" but the man who won two Champions League titles with AC Milan stated it is the Premier League he sees himself next.

"The most important thing is to start; to find a club with a good project and be competitive. If it's in England, it's better"

However the Italian quashed any suggestions he may be set for an immediate return to football "I will stay out until the end of the season and try to find another club next season"

He currently leads the market for the next Chelsea manager, where he is available at a best price 4/1 with William Hill. Ancelotti is 3/1 with BetVictor to replace Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City and 14/1 with Paddy Power to be Manchester United's next manager.

Whoever does land the former Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid boss will be getting themselves one of the most decorated managers in World football. He and Bob Paisley are the only managers to have won the European Cup (Champions League) three times and also has three league titles in three different countries to his name.

He was Chelsea manager in the 2009/10 season in which he led the club to a league and FA Cup double in his first season in charge.
