Ancelotti happy to sit out for 12 months on £6M Chelsea compo

Carlo Ancelotti cannot work for 12 months due to his compensation agreement with Chelsea.

The Mail on Sunday says Ancelotti cannot work in the Premier League for the next 12 months because of the £6million pay-off he agreed with Chelsea.

The Londoners do not want the Italian in charge of a rival club next season and have made that a condition of his severance package, just as they did when Jose Mourinho left in 2007.

Ancelotti, who was sacked at the end of the season, last week turned down the chance to take over at Aston Villa, saying that he intended to take a 12-month break.

He had been a target for Roma, but the Italian wants to manage in England again and is prepared to put his feet up and wait.
