Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has spoken about his time at the club and his admiration for its current coach, Frank Lampard. Ancelotti, who led the club to a Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season but was sacked after a trophyless second season, recently said, “I have a fantastic memory of Chelsea. I am a supporter of the club. I won’t return there.”
The experienced Italian manager also dismissed any possibility of returning to Chelsea as a coach, stating, “Me going back to Chelsea as coach? No. I think Lampard is the right man and he will do a great job with them.” Ancelotti’s praise for Lampard highlights his confidence in the former Chelsea midfielder’s ability to successfully guide the team at Stamford Bridge.
