Hammers clear up Ancelotti rumours


CarloAncelottiNewPressGetty1West Ham have already ruled out a move for sacked Carlo Ancelotti.

No sooner had new of his sacking from Bayern Munich had emerged than some delusional speculation started that he would be perfect for West Ham.

Well no doubt, as he would for many other League clubs, but the chance of him finding his way to the London Stadium are a big fat zero.

The 58 year old Italian has managed a string of top clubs since 199 – Juventus, Milan, Chelsea, Paris St Germain, Real Madrid and now Bayern Munich.

Arsenal were immediately reported to be eyeing him up as a replacement for Arsene Wenger and the hammers have already ruled themselves out of making a move for him.

We were told this afternoon: “That’s fantasy talk because he hasn’t managed anything other than a top club for years.  It’s unlikely that he would want to now and he would cost a fortune anyway.”

    He’d probably want a little more than a book of Green Shield stamps and a £20 Ann Summers voucher for his transfer kitty as well😊

  • Alan D says:

    I seem to remember that he has said in the past, that he was once considering managing us.
    If we aim to be a top team, we are going to need a top manager, we should at least sound him out.

  • JRS says:

    Yes he wouldn’t come here nor do I think it be a great fit bc he is a bug name manager.
    But could move some managers around I think Nagelsmann is Fav to overtake Bayern. Think they were planning on summer but Tuchel is coming Ancelotti isnt.

  • Willtell says:

    Ha ha ha! A WH spokesperson said that? So we aren’t a top club and he’s too expensive. What was that about the next level….

  • Slater says:

    No near at the mediocre level required. If Slaven gets sacked ( I don’t want as he’ll get top ten which is the aim for these chairmen ) it’ll be Alan Pardew or David Moyes.
