Carlo Ancelotti would like to manage in the Premier League again, but he’s prepared to wait until 2017 before taking on a new role.

In an interview with The Independent, Ancelotti hinted he would be interested in managing Mancheser United when Louis van Gaal’s contract ends in 2017.

The now ex-Real Madrid manager was favourite to succeed David Moyes, however with the Bernabéu club winning the Champions League he chose to stay.

Ancelotti revealed he’s in no rush to get back into a managerial role, he said,

“If I don’t find a club with a good project, I can wait. What will I do? Watching games, fishing, all these things. But let us see next summer. I will not take a job in mid-season, but I would like to work again next summer.”


I have no regrets about staying at Real because I really enjoyed Madrid. I would like to come back in a club with a good project, but, of course, one that is competitive.

When asked about the possibility of managing Man United, the Italian manager, who also had a spell in charge at Chelsea said,

“Of course, for every manager, they would all think of managing Manchester United,”

Louis van Gaal and Sir Alex Ferguson have both hinted at Ryan Giggs being the next choice of manager for Manchester United, however could the club refuse Ancelotti the opportunity?
