Carlo Ancelotti keen on Arsenal job

Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has declared he is eager to manage another top club in the Premier League, and even suggested Arsene Wenger’s time at Arsenal is running out.

“It’s evident that Wenger’s bench is wobbling 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.”

Capello is currently under contract with England until the Euro 2012 tournament next summer, with Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp among the favourites to be his successor.

Ancelotti adds that he would also “include Tottenham and Liverpool” as possible destinations, but says “I’m not in a hurry.”

Ancelotti tells Italian daily La Repubblica that England “is the ideal country for a coach.”

Ancelotti, who won the 2003 and 2007 European Cups with A.C Milan, was sacked by Chelsea at the end of last season after a trophy less year, just one year after winning both the Premier League and F.A Cup double in his debut season.
