Ancelotti not keen on taking Italian job

Rome: Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that he is not considering coaching Italy`s national football team after next year`s World Cup tournament.

Ancelotti is one of the candidates expected to succeed Cesare Prandelli, who could return to club football following the World Cup.

But the Real Madrid boss showed no interest in the coaching role.

"You never know what will happen, but right now I like coaching on a daily basis," he was quoted as said by Xinhua, Friday.

He dropped speculations that he could return to AC Milan, if possible.

"A return to Milan? Why not? I`d always said yes to Milan," he said.

He expected Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella to be a great tactician in the future.

"There are a lot of good coaches around right now, but personally speaking, I do like Vincenzo Montella," he said.

"I like how his Fiorentina side plays and I like how he deals with the media." He added.
