Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has said he is happy at the club and is not eying the Italy job at the moment.
Azzurri boss Antonio Conte is coming under increasing pressure and with Ancelotti stating that he’d love to manage his country one day, it has been suggested the Real manager could take up the role on a part time basis until he’s able to full time.
But in an interview with Italian TV show Grand Hotel Chiambretti, Ancelotti said he wants to focus on one thing at a time and is committed to Real Madrid.
“I don’t think it’s possible, as right now I still love what I am doing, which means working every day on the pitch. Having a part-time role wouldn’t get my enthusiasm going,” he stated.
Ancelotti was also asked about the pressure of managing the biggest club side in the world compared to his previous jobs at Chelsea, PSG and AC Milan. And he commented that whether fighting for titles or trying to avoid relegation, the pressures of being a manager are much the same everywhere.
“Real Madrid’s objectives are very clear: they give you every possibility to compete at the top level in every competition, so the objective is to win,” Ancelotti said.
“The same thing happened at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain or Milan, because every side has its objectives and for a Coach it doesn’t matter whether the target is to avoid relegation or lift a trophy. The work doesn’t change.”
