‘Brilliant Coach’ ‘We Need New Young Blood Not This’ Fans React As 3 Time Champions League Winner Is Linked With Arsenal Hotseat

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is among the candidates to replace Unai Emery as Arsenal head coach, according to the Telegraph.

The former Chelsea boss is being eyed along with Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo and Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta as potential options to take over at the Emirates.

Ancelotti has won the Champions League three times, twice with AC Milan and once with Real Madrid, but at 60 years of age, he is not exactly a young, vibrant coach. It has led to a mixed reaction to the news on Twitter:


The Italian’s pedigree isn’t in question, but it must be said he is enduring a difficult season at Napoli. The Serie A side are currently seventh in the table and have not won any of their last seven games.

Ancelotti is contracted to Napoli until the end of the season, and it means sizeable compensation will be needed to bring him to England.

However, his experience of working in the Premier League and his ability to win trophies may persuade the Arsenal board to hire him.
