Former AC Milan and current Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has spoken about the idea of him potentially returning to the Rossoneri one day, and also discussed Marco Asensio’s future.
Ancelotti is moving closer to winning the LaLiga title after a comeback win against Sevilla last night and his side are also into the Champions League semi-finals as he continues to show himself to be a top manager.
There has always been intermittent speculation about a potential return to the Rossoneri in the future, given that in his spell in charge from 2001 to 2009 the club won eight trophies in eight years, and he spoke to Radio Rai about his future among other topics.
“The best victory? “It is difficult to rank the results you get: there are always great satisfactions, especially the championships in which continuity counts a lot. The 2004 Milan league title was a good race, but how can we forget the one with Chelsea,” he said (via Calciomercato.com).
“Return to milan? I’ll talk about it the day I close with Real Madrid. If I leave Real Madrid in 20 years I think I’ll be able to retire instead of going to Milan. Milan are one of the few teams that I hold in my heart because they raised me. Not as a player, but as a coach. As a director? There is Maldini who is doing an amazing job. There is no need for two.”
Ancelotti was also asked about the future of Marco Asensio who continues to be linked with a possible move to Milan ahead of the summer transfer window.
“He is a player of extraordinary quality. In recent years he has suffered a major knee injury, his recovery has been quite slow. He is an important player and I can only make a technical evaluation. The future? I don’t know what will happen – he is talking to the club about the renewal of his contract.”
Finally, on the future of Ibrahimovic: “After quitting he could do anything, because of his knowledge of football and the dynamics of the dressing room he could do anything.”
