The English Premier League has seen an influx of world class managers in recent seasons. Will Carlo Ancelotti be the next world class manager to land on the shores of England?
Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti could reportedly be set for a return to the Premier League if Bayern Munich does decide to trigger a break clause in his current three year deal with the German Champions.
Despite winning the Bundesliga title last season, the Italian is said to be under pressure from the club’s hierarchy following Bayern’s failure to challenge in the DFB Pokal as well as the Champions League last season.
A failure to put on a strong challenge in the Champions League is said to be one of the main reasons why the club hierarchy is contemplating a change of managers after just one season. The recent 2-0 defeat at the hands of Hoffenheim is also said to have placed further doubts on Ancelotti’s future.
Interestingly, Julian Nagelsmann, the 30-year-old Hoffenheim manager who masterminded the 2-0 win over Bayern is said to be the front runner for the Bayern job should Bayern decide to part ways with their current manager.
Ancelotti who won the Premier League with Chelsea in 2010 was linked to both Manchester United and Liverpool in the past. A move to any of these two clubs seems unlikely though with the two clubs boasting Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp at the helm respectively. One possible destination that has been touted is Arsenal. With Arsene Wenger facing increasing calls for him to step down in recent seasons, Ancelotti could very well replace the beleaguered Arsenal manager next season.
It might still be too early to contemplate the future of Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich. Given the fact that he delivered a league title in his first season at Bayern, it would be very harsh for Bayern to dismiss him so quickly. The standards at Bayern Munich though are incredibly high and a bad showing in the Champions League or the domestic competitions now and before the end of the season might just force Bayern to part ways with the 58-year-old.
