Lippi open to Chelsea offer

World Cup winning Italy coach Marcelo Lippi has suggested he would be keen to return to club management, with Chelsea a possible destination.
Lippi, who stepped down from his second stint as Azzurri coach last year, expressed his interest in the English Premier League when asked in an interview with Italian radio station Mana Mana.
“I would love to coach in the Premier League. Chelsea? It would be nice,” said Lippi.
With Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea future in the balance, and owner Roman Abramovic a known admirer of the former Juventus and Inter coach, a deal to bring Lippi to West London looks an increasing possibility, given the 63-year-old’s proven track record, both at national and club level.
“I’d like to coach Chelsea, the Premier League fascinates me,” continued Lippi. “Coaching to me is missing, this is normal. My years have been intense, rewarding, there were also disappointments, but this is absolutely normal, you cannot always win.”
Following Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last night, which ended their European title aspirations for another year, Ancelotti admitted he was unsure whether he would see out the remaining 14 months of his contract, despite being crowned Premier League champions last term.
Lippi retains all the credentials of a possible successor and is keen to showcase his coaching skills abroad for the first time. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
