La Liga Side Eye Carlo Ancelotti For Management Position

La Liga Side Eye Carlo Ancelotti For Management Position

Carlo Ancelotti is one of the most well decorated managers in world football but right now he's just chilling out. The Italian is without a club since being sacked by Bayern Munich but now one La Liga side are eyeing a move for him.

Zinedine Zidane, Antonio Conte and Unai Emery are all currently under some pressure in their jobs and none of them are really expected to be in their jobs at the beginning of next season as things stand.

One man who knows what it's like to manager at Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG is Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian might have handled all three of those jobs, winning 11 trophies in that time, but right now he's doing nothing.

Check out our Premier League Spanish XI:

Considering his major success it's amazing his name doesn't come up more often but since being sacked by Bayern Munich earlier this season he's been taking some time away from football.

However now one club are eyeing a move for him. According to El Gol Digital, via Football Italia, Athletic Bilbao are considering sacking manager Jose Angel Ziganda are want to replace him with Ancelotti.

Bilbao have lost their best player in centre back Aymeric Laporte to Manchester City this week and things haven't been going well for them at all this season.

The Basque club are currently in the bottom half of La Liga in 12th and look unlikely to battle for Europa League places, being six points off the qualifying places at the moment.

More embarrassingly for the club was their Copa del Rey exit this season. They lost 2-1 over two legs to third tier side Formentera in the third round. They are at least in the Europa League still where they face Spartak Moscow next.

Ancelotti recently ruled himself out of the running for the Italy job, saying, "I remain with my idea, first you need clarity, then we can talk about it, even if my goal is to coach a club team.

"Which one? I still don't know, it's all on the high seas, we'll need to wait a couple of months."

Where will Ancelotti finally rock up?
