Carlo Ancelotti has talked to Radio Anch’io lo Sport earlier this morning to release a few updates about his future and comment, once again, his sacking from Bayern Munich.
“The reason behind the sacking is not Neuer’s injury. He is a great goalkeeper and his injury has affected us but that’s not the main reason. I’ve been a football manager for the last 20 years, I know big clubs want to see results even if you can’t make any judgement in September. I have time to watch football now, I am looking for new opportunities but not from now. My contract with Bayern expires at the end of the season and that’s when I’ll start listening to new offers.”
“I want a serious project that can give me time and serenity even though I know it’s not easy. I am just waiting something will come.”
“Premier League is a very interesting league of course. The atmosphere is amazing there even if Bundesliga stadiums are also great. I don’t know where I could end up, Italy is a solution as well. Every days there are new speculations about my future. Croatia, China, Everton, Chelsea. Don’t make my friend Antonio [Conte] upset, I always talk to him.”
“Serie A is very interesting. Napoli are the table leaders, Juventus have never gone away, then Lazio, Roma and Inter who don’t have to play any European cup. AC Milan have made many changes, the fourth place would be a great target but it won’t be easy. Nobody has the magic wand. Managers and projects need time to be successful, six months are not enough to build a new squad from the beginning. AC Milan will need to sign more players in the future. Montella is right when he says that it’s difficult to buy top players, that’s why the rossoneri have signed several young players. I’d see myself coaching Roma but don’t tell Di Francesco. The truth is, I’d like any club, I’d like to coach and I will listen to offers at the end of the season.”
