5 potential job offers for Carlo Ancelotti
The 3-0 thrashing of Bayern Munich at the hands of PSG turned out to be the final nail in the coffin for Carlo Ancelotti. Bayern's struggles domestically and rumours of Ancelotti having lost the dressing room didn't help his cause either and as a result someone had to face the wrath.
Unfortunately, Ancelotti had to be replaced with the coming-out-of-retirement Bavarian fan favourite, Jupp Heynckes. But, for a manager as accomplished as Carlo Ancelotti it would hardly be a tough task to find a new job. After all, who wouldn't want a manager who has managed big European clubs like Milan, Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, PSG and most recently Bayern Munich. Having won three UEFA Champions League titles and a bunch of league titles in various countries, there are sure to be suitors for Carlo Ancelotti.
Here, we take a look at five possible destinations for Carlo Ancelotti.
#5 Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund are known for their squad full of talented youngsters and experienced veterans supported by a boisterous fan base, and yet, they somehow fail to convert this into trophies. The answer to this conundrum being the absence of an established manager. Dortmund have been lucky to witness the brilliance of the likes of Klopp and Tuchel, but, not being able to attract any big names and their continuous failure to hold onto their top talents has led to stagnation of kinds.
But, this could all change with the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti. His expertise in handling a top club and his ability to attract top players from across the world will undoubtedly help Dortmund. And with his experience in the Bundesliga, he will definitely help Dortmund mount a title challenge next season. With the kind of success he has tasted on the big stage in the UEFA Champions League, he will also give Dortmund the necessary push at the fag end of the tournament.
And a move to his former employers' great rivals will serve as an impetus to do well and will add to the excitement of Der Klassiker.
