PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti admits he had hoped to land the jobs at Arsenal and Tottenham after being sacked by Chelsea.

Ancelotti, who left Stamford Bridge at the end of last season, was appointed PSG coach last month following the sacking of Antoine Kombouare.

"Before PSG's call I thought of a year-long sabbatical, hoping that in the summer a job like Tottenham or Arsenal - a top London bench - would become available, but I was tired of not working," Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport.
