Real Madrid boss Ancelotti rules out becoming Man Utd manager
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed reports linking him with the manager’s job at Man Utd, according to Sky Sports.
Ancelotti has only been in the Bernabeu hotseat since last summer, having departed French outfit Paris Saint-Germain shortly before, and is not planning on a Premier League return by becoming David Moyes’ permanent successor.
Reports had linked the former Chelsea boss with the job in time for next season, but the 54-year-old has no interest in taking charge of the team, which will be overseen by Ryan Giggs until the end of the current campaign.
He has already led Real Madrid to the Copa del Rey title by beating Barcelona in the final, and the prospect of the famed treble remains in his side’s sights, with Real sitting six points behind local rivals Atletico Madrid with one game in hand. They are also participating in the Champions League semi-finals, where they travel to holders Bayern Munich with a single goal advantage.
Ancelotti reflected his sympathy for the dethroned Moyes, but respectfully ended speculation that he could be the next man at the helm when speaking to reporters.
The Italian said: “I'm happy here at Real Madrid. I am lucky to be working at the best club in the world and my place is here.
“I respect Man United a lot. I was disappointed for David Moyes, but my place at the moment is here.”
