Mirabelli: “The roads between Ancelotti and Milan will meet again in the future”

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan director Massimiliano Mirabelli believes that Carlo Ancelotti will return to the Rossoneri as manager one day.

Ancelotti is currently in charge of Napoli, the team who will visit San Siro to play Milan on Saturday, and is currently experiencing a tough period.

The Napoli squad recently mutinied against a training retreat ordered by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis, leading to rumours Ancelotti could be sacked as head coach and that a number of their star players could be forced out in January.

Last week, reports from newspaper Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com) even claimed that Paolo Maldini is considering the idea of bringing Ancelotti back ahead of next season as head coach given that Stefano Pioli has had little impact.

Ancelotti played for the Rossoneri from 1987 to 1992 and then was manager from 2001 to 2009, winning 15 major honours at the club across both periods.

Speaking to the microphones of Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, Mirabelli revealed some background on talks they had with Ancelotti while he was at Bayern.

“We met him to see what the chances of his return to Milan could be,” he said (via MilanNews.it).

“He is among the best coaches in the world, the titles say everything. We talked about it but at the time he was contracted to Bayern.

“I believe that the roads between Ancelotti and Milan will meet again in the future meet as well as I think he could train Roma, who he is tied to.”
