Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out the possibility of returning to Stamford Bridge to replace compatriot Antonio Conte, report The Sun.
It seems unthinkable that we could so much as suggest that Conte will not be sticking around at Stamford Bridge. Having won the Premier League title in his debut season in England’s top tier, and setting a new record for most wins in a single season, he reaffirmed his position among the best managers on the planet.
However, after a series of transfer failures in the summer window, and some suspect performances early in the 2017/18 campaign, a grey cloud has emerged over West London, and it has left a major question mark over Conte’s long-term future at the club.
As The Sun report, this has led to inevitable speculation linking the jobless Carlo Ancelotti with the Chelsea managerial position. However, Ancelotti has ruled out succeeding fellow Italian Conte.
Ancelotti is quoted by The Sun saying:
“I get linked with a new club every day. Recently it was Chelsea. That angered my friend Antonio Conte, I am often in touch with him, and there is no truth in the rumour.”
