That sort of contradicts what he said a couple of days ago;
"I want a serious project that can give me time and serenity, even though I know itís not easy. I am just waiting and something will come.
The Premier League is a very interesting league of course. The atmosphere is amazing there, even if Bundesliga stadiums are also great."
Sounds pretty long term to me.
We'll have to agree to disagree on him then mate, not that I'd be daft enough to not consider him at all, especially when the main names at the moment have success with 2 small time Lancashire clubs as their biggest achievements in football.
I just get the feeling that what Ancelotti is good at is not entirely what we need. He has a pedigree of coming into a club full of big stars, massaging egos and being a safe pair of hands. He's not really been seen as a tactical genius in recent years and things have come out that have shown he is not very hands on.
At clubs like Chelsea, Madrid, Bayern, I think he just ran with what was already in place, with minor tweaks, rather than completely changed everything and went in a new innovative direction.
At Chelsea he just continued the good work that was first started by Jose. He also immediately followed Hiddink who himself had done an excellent job steadying the ship.
At Madrid he was following Jose again, who had done a lot of the groundwork in terms of ensuring Madrid competes with Barca.
At Bayern he was given the job to maintain the level of Pep.
What I'm saying is, with this type of approach we aren't going to get into the top 4 are we? He's never come in at a club that needs to leap forward a great deal. He's excellent at what he does though.
Maybe it would work I suppose. He may want this type of challenge as you say, but his history doesn't stack up.
Can I just add that yes he has won 3 champs leagues, but he has also only won 4 league titles in his career as a manager, is that a great track record over a 20 year period as manager of 5 or 6 of the biggest and most dominant teams in club history?
