Italy ‘want Carlo Ancelotti to be new boss’


Reports in Italy and Spain have suggest the Italian FA want Carlo Ancelotti to take over as the boss of the national side.

Cesare Prandelli quit his role following the early elimination from the World Cup. They started off by beating England but lost to both Costa Rica and Uruguay to go crashing out at the group stage.

And El Confidencial says Ancelotti is seen as the man to restore Italy to its former glories having built a hugely impressive CV and worked in many countries. A poll in Italy showed that 84% of Italians want the Real Madrid manager to take over the national side, with Roberto Mancini and Luciano Spalletti other potential candidates for the job.

The job however may come too soon for Ancelotti. The 55-year-old has never kept secret his desire to manage his national team one day, but having won the Champions League and Copa del Rey in his first season at Real Madrid, he’s thought to be willing to commit his future to the club by signing a new deal.

Prior to his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ancelotti had won the Champions League with AC Milan, and has also won trophies in England with Chelsea and in France with PSG.
