Ancelotti fancies England job

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has declared his interest in becoming England boss.

Ancelotti's contract at Stamford Bridge expires in 2012 - just as Fabio Capello is set to step down as England manager - and the 51-year-old would consider taking up the post currently occupied by his fellow Italian.

Asked if he fancied the England job, he said: "Why not?" Quoted in several national newspapers, he continued: "I would like to do it in the future, to have this kind of experience."

He added: "I have never been the coach of a national team. To manage the national team and manage a club is different.

"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?'"

Ancelotti led the Blues to a Barclays Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season in England.
