Ancelotti Dismisses Man United Links

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has laughed off the suggestion that he will assume the reigns at Manchester United following the sacking of David Moyes. The former AC Milan coach had a stint in the Premier League with Chelsea, winning the league title in his first season in charge but failed to land the Champions League during his brief tenure in England.

“I’m really happy here” said the Italian. “I’m lucky to work at the best team in the world.

“I respect Man Utd a lot. I was disappointed for David Moyes, but my place at the moment is here.”

United are in search of their 24th manager, with Ryan Giggs assuming the role of caretaker manager until a permanent replacement is found. Giggs today held a press conference and revealed that this was “the proudest moment” of his life, and hopes to lead Manchester United into a European competition, as he does not believe a club of United’s stature should not be out of Europe.

United will continue their search for a manager, who may well be Ryan Giggs, but will look to rebuild their team as they believe to be in transition.
