We need to start getting used to the idea that Guus Hiddink will not stay on as Chelsea manager, so there will be (yet another) new man on the Chelsea touchline next season. Lindy has set us a challenge to say what we feel about Chelsea`s managerial prospects. But rather than write about what we would like to happen, I thought I would write about what I think is likely to happen. And, from what we read, the name that keeps cropping up is Milan`s coach, Carlo Ancelotti.
We`ll pass over the rather banal revelations from David Beckham that Carlo Ancelotti is learning English although I can`t help point out that, if the purpose of this was to help communications between coach and player, surely it is up to Beckham to learn Italian. Then again, in his time at Real Madrid Beckham failed to learn Spanish.
