Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti says he would return to manage in the Premier League.

Ancelotti is taking a 10-month break from football after his recent sacking by Bayern Munich, but says he would be open to a top-flight job next season.

“I want to manage. Not this season, maybe next season (either) in the Premier League or at another club. The only think I want to do is to train.”

Ancelotti was speaking in Jerusalem, after hosting a special training session for local children from different faiths as part of the Assist for Peace Project.

“The project is to bring together all the kids of all religions and to play together in a really special and difficult place,” said Ancelotti.

“It’s to help a new generation to build a new relationship together. The kids were very happy.

“Sport helps to build new relationships and a respect of others.”
