The elections in Italy are over and Milan have confirmed Carlo Ancelotti has officially declined their proposal.
Silvio Berlusconi was very confident that Carlo Ancelotti will return to Milan to lead the Rossoneri back to the Champions League next season but with the elections in Italy now done, reality can be restored at Casa Milan and the Milanello center.
Ancelotti was expected to give his final answer to Milan tomorrow but instead he delivered it today (Tuesday) and despite the effort (some fans question its legitimacy), Carletto has chosen to take a year off football.
An official statement on Milan’s website that “Ancelotti will not be the coach of the first Milan team in the next season.” Ancelotti then wrote on twitter: “Thanks to AC Milan for their support interest. It was hard to say no to such beloved club to me but I need some rest. I wish them the best.”
Gazzetta dello Sport now suggest that the next Milan coach will be one of Sinisa Mihajlovic, Vincenzo Montella and Roberto Donadoni. The name of Primavera coach Brocchi has also been mentioned.
