Cellino: Former Chelsea, Real Madrid boss Ancelotti told me he would come to Leeds Utd

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has revealed that Carlo Ancelotti would consider managing the club if they were to return to the Premier League.

According to the Italian, his fellow countryman contacted him to suggest that a shock move to Elland Road could one day be on the cards if the West Yorkshire outfit were able to gain promotion from the Championship back to England's top flight.

"Ancelotti called me. 'Massimo, bring the club into the Premier League and I come to you because the only place I miss and want to go back to is England'," he told The Telegraph.

"For me a good coach still has to show he's a good coach. Come here and show me."

Former Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss Ancelotti, who was sacked by Real Madrid in May last year, is set to take over at German giants Bayern Munich this summer.
