Carlo aims to deliver Chelsea dynasty
Written by Ross Mackiewicz
Carlo Ancelotti has outlined his desire to deliver a long lasting legacy to Chelsea under his stewardship.
The Italian who guided the club to their first domestic double last season intends to spend the next quarter of a century at the West London club before entering international management.
Speaking to Talk-Sport, the 51 year old stated.
“My desire is to be here for 25 years. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I hope to stay for a long time.”
“I would like to manage a national team. It could be England, it could be Italy.”
“But, of course, I would like to be coach of the Italian team because I am Italian.”
The former AC Milan coach also said that his squad are determined to win their first Champions League trophy – with the final taking place at Wembley at the end of next May.
He won the title as a player at The Rossoneri twice in 1989 and 1990 and also as coach in 2003 and 2007. Although he doesn’t have a sheer preference in terms of domestic or European success he is determined to add the coveted trophy to the clubs cabinet.
“When I came to Chelsea our aim was to be involved in all the competitions. The Champions League is not more important than the Premier League – they are at the same level and we maintain that.”
“They are two very important competitions but it’s natural after winning the Premier League last season to think more about the Champions League.”
“The final this season is in London at Wembley and that’s a good motivation. All the London teams will want to win the Champions League for this reason.”
