Real Madrid boss, Carlo Ancelotti’s chances of managing the club next season are 50-50. Although the Italian hasn’t confirmed his departure but he’s decided to take a year out to focus on his health.
His second spell at the Spanish club has been quite disappointing and there are reports that would be replaced by Adriano Galliani or Raphael Benitez.
The former Chelsea handler who knows fate today disclosed that if he is shown the exit door at the Bernabeu, he won’t be taking any managerial role from any club for now.
“I said it in the press conference and I repeat: I will stop for a year. Also because I have a very serious reason for stopping. I have to have an operation because of my cervical stenosis. For some time, it has been affecting my hands and if I lose any more time, it could pass into legs, so I have an appointment for surgery. And, frankly, I do not know how long I have to be physically stopped, in terms of the post-operative phase and the subsequent rehabilitation.
He continued,”It will be a pleasure to host Galliani for dinner, but I cannot change my programme. I will have the operation in Vancouver, Canada, where I have already got a house with my wife. I will rest, between Madrid and Canada. Because the two years at Real have been very tough, believe me.
“Nobody can imagine how much training Real takes out of you, in terms of physical and nervous energy. Then, I will return home for another event: in a month, my grandson will be born. That’s something that I cannot and do not want to miss.” He stated.
