The Paris Saint Germain boss reveals his love for the Giallorossi; and heaps praise on Filippo Inzaghi and Mario Balotelli.
Paris Saint Germain boss, Carlo Ancelotti, has once again expressed his desire of coaching AS Roma in the future.
Ancelotti, who has previously managed Juventus A.C Milan and Chelsea, has admitted that he was never contacted by the Stadio Olimpico Rome authorities. The tactician believes that his high wage demands might be the reason of not
being offered a coaching role at Rome.
The former Giallorossi striker has immense love for the capital side, having played for them for eight years. He went onto score 12 goals in 171 appearances for Roma.
The 52-yeaar-old went onto praise current Giallorossi boss Luis Enrique, but he believes that the Spaniard needs more time to acclimatise himself to the Italian conditions.
While talking to Italian Magazine Max, Ancelotti said:
“I do dream to be on the Roma bench and I hope Luis Enrique doesn’t get angry with me for saying that. He has good ideas and a philosophy of football, but still needs to adapt to Italian football. He needs time, but will he get
it? In any case, I never had contact with Roma. Maybe it’s because I earn too much...”
Ancelotti went onto praise A.C Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi, and believes that the veteran was a pivotal figure in the tactician’s success at San Siro. The PSG boss revealed that he stopped Inzaghi from leaving Milan in the summer,
and told him to spend the remaining part of his career with the Italian Champions.
“To this day, Pippo Inzaghi remains the greatest and he helped me win so many trophies. I called him when he was considering leaving in January and said he made Milan history, so should stay there right to the end.” Added the PSG
The former Rossoneri midfielder went onto discuss the attitude problems of Mario Balotelli, and insisted that the Manchester City striker has immense talent, and he can become a better player than Antonio Cassano.
Balotelli is dropped from the Italian national team for his short-tempered attitude.
