Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has a desire to turn his hand to African football, and would like to coach the Ghana national team, claims his friend Domenico Ricci.
Ancelotti has proven a hit in Italy and England, and in future wants to grapple with the illusions and reality of African football as he widens his reach.
For his part, Ancelotti has maintained his immediate future rides on Chelsea as he continues to attract riches at Stamford Bridge following their impressive start to the season.
Ricci though has other ideas.
"I can say that Ancelotti's thoughts have shifted from the Ivory Coast to Ghana," Ricci, an African football expert and agent, told Premium Calcio.
"There are various people involved too. A famous Milan player who is a midfielder and still playing will be his assistant." ? Last week reports in England claimed Chelsea were ready to offer Ancelotti a contract extension.
