Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he would consider taking on the coaching position at Liverpool or Tottenham, with the Italian also citing Arsenal as a possible destination over the next year.
Ancelotti was sacked by Chelsea after two seasons, one in which he took the club to the FA Cup/title double.
And now the manager, who is still out of work, says he wants to remain in the Barclays Premier League rather than heading to Italy or Spain, with Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal all under his consideration.
"I have a strong will to remain in England," Ancelotti told Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
"For a coach, this is the ideal country. But I would only consider [managing] top clubs, including Tottenham and Liverpool.
"It's evident that [Arsene] Wenger's bench is wobbling [at Arsenal] and that in several months' time, an English coach will be appointed to replace [England manager Fabio] Capello in the national team, which will free up a place in a club."
Ancelotti’s sacking from Chelsea came as a shock to many, with inexperienced manager Andre Villas-Boas being appointed in his place.
And should the Arsenal, Tottenham or Liverpool managerial positions become available, Ancelotti will no doubt be very open to making a return to both English football and possibly the Champions League.
