Chelsea manager, Carlo Ancelotti reveals an interesting statement recently saying that in the future he could follow his fellow countryman, Fabio Capello’s footsteps in becoming the coach of England national team.
That fact was unveiled when the former Ac Milan coach answered to the press question of whether he is interested in taking the England job in the future by saying that he is very interested in the possibility.
“ I would like to do it in the future, to have this kind of experience. I have never been the coach of a national team. To manage the national team and manage a club is different.” Ancelotti said. “Maybe [Tottenham manager Harry] Redknapp doesn’t like foreign coaches for the national team, but if you ask me about England, I can say ‘Why not?”’
This statement is contradicting his previous statement back in March, where he refuses the speculation saying that he is being considered as one of the candidates to coach the Italian national team. However, after successfully giving the domestic titles for Chelsea last season, it seems like Ancelotti now only has the Champions League trophy on his sight before deciding to roll on a new adventure in coaching a national team.
Off course the chance of Ancelotti to coach England after Capello might be very slim considering the fact that should Capello fails to deliver, the FA might be reluctant in acquiring another Italian coach. Especially just like Ance stated there are some local coaches that didn’t like the idea of bringing foreign coach to manage the national team especially facts still shows that so far foreign managers haven’t really provide things that the locals can’t do.
Still, it would be interesting to see how would Ancelotti fair in handling the pressure of coaching a national team as it needs a different kind of approach and mentality in managing a country compared to handling football clubs. Although coaching England might be a long shot, theres always a chance of seeing Carletto taking the bench of Italian national team in the future especially with his well known good rapports in managing players.
