Croatia reportedly offer Carlo Ancelotti the national job
Carlo Ancelotti is currently unemployed after being sacked by Bayern Munich last month and the Italian has clearly indicated that he doesn’t want to get back into club management until next season. But a job on the national scene could be well on the cards.
Today, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Ancelotti has been approached by the Croatian federation to manage the national side in the World Cup next year.
Croatia are yet to book a place in the World Cup finals after they finished second in Group I and will now face Greece in a two-legged play-off next month.
The side is currently being managed by Zlatko Dalić after Ante Čačić was sacked two days prior to the clash against Ukraine. However, it is believed that Dalić will be replaced by Ancelotti should Croatia qualify.
No concrete offer has been made yet but it is believed that the 58-year-old would take a pay cut to manage Croatia until the World Cup next year.
Meanwhile, Ancelotti returned to Stamford Bridge yesterday as Chelsea took on Roma. Ancelotti played for Roma as a player while he later went on to represent Chelsea as manager.
The results would have probably invoked mixed feelings as Roma came back from two goals down to draw with Chelsea in a six-goal thriller. Ancelotti later posted a picture on his social media account.
