Ancelotti plans season-long sabbatical
Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti plans to take a
season-long sabbatical before he coaches again.
”Besides a gap of six months, I’ve been coaching straight
through since ’95,” Ancelotti told Turin daily La Stampa on
Monday. ”I’m going to stop for a year, look around, update myself
and study how colleagues operate.”
Ancelotti was fired last month after his second season at
Stamford Bridge ended without a trophy.
The Italian has been linked to various openings in England and
Italy, notably Roma, but he says he hasn’t been contacted by any
English clubs nor Roma, although he still maintains he will coach
”One day I will coach Roma,” Ancelotti said. ”I’ve always
said that and I’m repeating it now, but it’s early yet.”
Ancelotti is a former Roma and AC Milan player and coached Milan
to two Champions League trophies before moving to Chelsea.
