Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has revealed Carlo Ancelotti wants to manage Leeds should they return to the Premier League, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Widely regarded as one of the best coaches in world football, the Italian is set to takeover from Manchester City bound Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich over the course of the summer.
Having already managed the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, the Italian is one of the biggest names in the game.
Thrice winning the Champions League, the 56-year old is claimed to want to move to Elland Road if they move up a tier in English football – according to their enigmatic owner.
“Ancelotti called me. ‘Massimo, bring the club into the Premier League and I come to you because the only place I miss and want to go back to is England’, revealed the 59-year old.
Cellino’s ownership of the Yorkshire giants has been littered with controversy. He has sacked five managers and his sixth, Steve Evans, is reportedly on the way out of the door.
World Cup winning defender Fabio Cannavaro is said to be on the verge of being handed the reins at the Whites, despite having little managerial experience outside of the Middle East.
Leeds have been battling towards the bottom of the table for much of the season, though two wins on the bounce as lifted them into 12th.
Looking to make it three wins on the trot, they host Wolves tomorrow with uncertainty over yet another manager’s future.
There’s no way Cellino is serious, right? What on earth do Leeds fans think of Cannavaro too?
