Carlo Ancelotti admits he is still hoping to land another job in England, six months after leaving Chelsea, but insists he will not be shutting any doors reports skysports.com.

The 52-year-old Italian tactician has been out of work since May, and claims he has been using his time out of management to improve his knowledge of the game.

After a successful first season at Stamford Bridge, where he delivered a Barclays Premier League and FA Cup double for Chelsea, Ancelotti was controversially sacked by Blues owner Roman Abramovich after ending his second campaign empty-handed.

The west Londoners acted quickly and moved to bring in Andre Villas-Boas - fresh from the 34-year-old having completed the quadruple in Portugal with FC Porto.

With Ancelotti's Chelsea exile now seemingly a distant memory, the former Juventus and AC Milan boss admits he would relish the chance to take up another job in England.

"I would like to," he told Sky Sports News. "We will have to wait and see. I am using this time to improve my knowledge. I will wait.

"I would like to stay here, but if it is not possible I will find another solution outside of this country."
