​Ancelotti: I'd come back to Chelsea, but they won't sack Mourinho

Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he would be interested in taking over at Chelsea but doesn't believe the club will sack current boss Jose Mourinho.

Ancelotti spent two seasons at Chelsea winning the Premier league and the FA Cup in 2010, but was sacked the following season after the Blues flopped in the Champions League.

Having been released by Real Madrid at the end of last season, Ancelotti would be available should Chelsea part ways with Mourinho, but the Italian doesn't believe that Roman Abramovich will be making such a decision anytime soon.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Italian said: "I would have no problem with Chelsea, but Jose won't be sacked. They already choose to keep him, and I think they made a good choice."
