A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Rumours have emerged suggesting Ancelotti – who departed Bayern Munich last month after a 3-0 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain – could be in line to take over at the King Power Stadium.But Clement, who worked under Ancelotti with Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid and Bayern, believes the Italian will continue to enjoy his break from football until 2018-19.”The last time I spoke to him he said he’s taking time off and wants to go into club football again next summer. I don’t see why that would have changed,” Clement told a media conference.”He’s going to have the rest of the year off.

Craig did extremely well at @LCFC, helping the team become champions.”— Swansea City AFC (@SwansOfficial) October 19, 2017″It’s a shame when a fellow manager loses his job. We all know the pressures we face,” Clement said.”He did well not only as manager at end of last season but also in his role as assistant and behind the scenes to help that team become champions.”He earned it, steadied the ship and won his first five games last season, had a good run in the Champions League.”It’s sad because eight games in he’s been judged on results and they’ve decided to remove him. I wish him the best and hope he gets another position soon.”It was more shocking the change of Frank De Boer after four games. That’s double but still a short time to make a decision that someone isn’t good enough to take the team forward.”last_img read more
