Ancelotti nervous about accepting offer from Chelsea

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is nervous about accepting an offer from Chelsea, it has been revealed.

The Times says Ancelotti issued the latest of several denials yesterday that he is preparing to leave the San Siro for Stamford Bridge, but those who know him have said privately that he is stalling for time. The 49-year-old does, however, have concerns about leaving a club he has served with distinction for eight years, particularly as his proposed destination represents the polar opposite of the stability he enjoys at Milan.

Meanwhile, some at Chelsea are unconvinced by Ancelotti. Their main concerns are his limited English, which he is improving, and that he has never worked outside Italy, which are reminiscent of some of Scolari’s failings.
