Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says he's looking for an international job following his tenure at the Santiago Bernabeu, highlighting the Canadian Men's National Team as one of the teams he'd be interested in taking on.
The fabled Italian tactician is a proven winner, having guided the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich to Serie A, Premier League, Ligue1, La Liga and Bundesliga titles over the many years of his managerial career.
He's got a soft spot for Canada, where his wife is from, and something of a home as he's lived in Vancouver in-between his many shifts across Europe's top flights.
Now? He's looking at John Herdman's role with a keen eye, too.
“Yes, there would be a national team (I'd be interested in managing), but now it’s premature," Ancelotti told Amazon Prime, as quoted by the Daily Record.
"Certainly not for this World Cup. World Cup 2026, why not? Could be. Canada? I’d love to, sure. Canada did very well."
Ancelotti added: "After Real, yes, I’ll probably stop,
"If Real Madrid keep me here for 10 years, I will coach for 10 years. I would like to be with my grandchildren, go on vacation with my wife, there are so many things to do that I have left out and that I would like to do."
