Ivory Coast linked as AC Milan coach Ancelotti wants World Cup job

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti fancies leading an African nation in the 2010 World Cup.

Ancelotti's contract at Milan expires in the summer of 2010, so making him available to take charge of a national team World Cup qualifier.

"Why would it be strange to coach an African team?" quizzed Ancelotti. "I'd love to coach a World Cup team. I have a contract until 2010 and it's a target of mine."

Indeed, early speculation has Ancelotti taking charge of Didier Drogba's Ivory Coast, should they manage to qualify for South Africa.
