Italian tactician Carlo Ancelotti is planning to take a rest for 10 months following his sacking by German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich last week.
Ancelotti was sacked in the wake of a 3-0 UEFA Champions League loss to his former side Paris Saint-Germain.
The 58-year-old boasts a superb coaching credentials, having spent time with top clubs like AC Milan, Chelsea, Juventus, PSG, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich.
The Italian is, however, ready to take a break from coaching before seeking another job ahead of the 2018-19 League season.
Ancelotti told rnewsmen at a charity match in the Israeli City of Jerusalem: “I [Ancelotti] will [take a] rest for the next 10 months, so no other clubs.”
Following his sacking by Bayern Munich, the German Bundesliga club’s president, Uli Hoeness, claimed that Carlo Ancelotti had lost the support of a number of senior players, making his post untenable.
While the former Real Madrid coach now finds himself club less, he is already being heavily linked with teams across Europe, including a return to Italy, with AC Milan and AS Roma.
North London giant Arsenal are another club to have been discussed, with the former Chelsea boss reported to prefer a stint at the Emirates Stadium.
