Vote: Is Carlo Ancelotti the right man for the Chelsea job?
Will new manager bring the second wave of the Blue Revolution?
The same crystal ball that allowed The Spoiler’s to accurately forecast the Champions League starting line-ups has come in handy again. Last Friday, we told you Leonardo would replace Carlo Ancelotti as AC Milan manager today, and of course, this prophecy has come to pass.
Enough cockiness about the well-informed predictions of a handsome blogger though, as we need to find out if the FNG* is the right man for the Blues job.
With Serie A, Coppa Italia and two Champions league titles under his belt, few can doubt Ancelotti’s pedigree as a world class manager. However, as Glenn Hoddle astutely points out in this morning’s Sun, hie experience lies only in Italy, and English football is a completely different kettle of
people who are being punished for their sins in a former life fish.
Additionally, there is no telling how much of a rapport he will share with the squad: they warmed to Guus Hiddink very quickly, but with English speaking skills that are currently not much better than those of Luiz Felipe Scolari or John Terry, he may struggle to ingratiate himself with the players.
So, will Carlo become a huge success in the Premiership, or will poor results drive him back to a league where he can smoke himself to death on the sidelines once again? Let us know your thoughts below…
*FNG = F**kin’ New Guy. Get with the times, granddad.
