Chelsea boss Ancelotti: England should not rule out foreign coach

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says England should not exclude foreigners from applying to succeed Fabio Capello.

The FA have indicated that they would prefer an Englishman in charge when Capello steps down after the European Championships in 2012.

But Chelsea's Italian boss Ancelotti said: "It could be English, it could be a foreign manager, it is the decision of FA. I don't think it has to be necessarily English. There are a lot of coaches with good qualities, not just English.

"For a long time the England team has had a foreign manager, they were unlucky also. (Sven-Goran) Eriksson was not lucky."
