It would be highly optimistic to think of Carlo Ancelotti managing Leicester City, but stranger things have happened at the King Power Stadium in the last couple of years.
The Italian needs no introduction, for his phenomenal record speaks for itself. A three-time UEFA Champions League winner, the former Bayern Munich manager has won titles in as many as four different nations, including England, where he led Chelsea to the 2009-10 Premier League title and in some style.
Carlo Ancelotti would undoubtedly bring the winning pedigree as a lagniappe, something that few managers can boast. Most notably, he doesn’t really have a specific set of tactics or a system that he likes to go by – he simply sees what he has at his disposal, makes improvements and wins, no matter how.
His flexibility means that the Leicester players can easily acquaint themselves to the manager and get going.
