The Italian was planning a short-term sabbatical from managing and was willing to wait until summer to see if a job were to become available at either of the two clubs.
Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport:
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.
What do you guys think? Would Ancelotti have been a good manager for Arsenal? It is becoming apparent the many Arsenal fans are divided over whether Wenger should stay or leave. Feel free to leave a comment below!
