Tuttosport: Maldini considers bringing Ancelotti back to Milan next summer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini is keen on bringing Carlo Ancelotti back for another spell as manager, according to a shock report.

Ancelotti is currently in charge of Napoli but is under increasing pressure after a poor start to the season.

Recently, he and his squad made the headlines after the team mutinied against a training retreat ordered by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis, leading to rumours Ancelotti could be sacked as head coach.

Meanwhile, Stefano Pioli has failed to turn Milan around having lost three of his first five games, and he is set to leave the club at the end of the season if a European spot is not attained.

According to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – Maldini is considering the idea of bringing Ancelotti back ahead of next season.

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.

If he were to return, he would almost certainly break the record of Nereo Rocco as the coach with most games managed, currently standing at 459-420 in favour of Rocco.
