Bent would love to see Ancelotti in charge at Aston Villa

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has urged the club to do everything they can to bring Carlo Ancelotti to the club.

The England striker thinks Ancelotti would be the ideal replacement for Gerard Houllier, who stepped down over his health.

Bent said: "If we get Ancelotti everyone will be excited to go forward. Of course Aston Villa have to go for managers of the calibre of Ancelotti.

"Villa are a massive football club so if we can get him it shows the direction the club is going.

"I spoke to a couple of the Chelsea guys. They thought he was brilliant. Ashley Cole said he loved him, said he was a really good manager."
