New Derby boss Clement eyeing 'special' battle with ex-Real Madrid mentor Ancelotti

New Derby County manager Paul Clement is aiming high, with the Englishman targeting a Premier League clash with former boss Carlo Ancelotti in the near future.

Clement spent six years as an assistant to Ancelotti, at Chelsea, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain and has indicated that the Italian would be open to a return to the Premier League.

The 43-year old noted that a future clash between master and apprentice would be 'special'.

"I'd love to face him in the Premier League. He loved working in England," he said.

"Carlo is a Champions League specialist after winning it three times as a manager and twice as a player.

"I'd like to think we'd cross paths in that way. It would be very special."
