Moratti denies Ancelotti interest
Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has insisted that Carlo Ancelotti is not in line to become manager of the Nerazzurri.
Moratti is preparing for the departure of Leonardo, less than a year after taking the reins. Former AC Milan coach Ancelotti is available since he was dismissed by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich immediately after the Blues' final game of last season.
Moratti has revealed Bielsa has pulled out of discussions due to personal reasons, and that he was now weighing up potential candidates.
"With regards to Ancelotti, no-one has thought of him and certainly it's not because we don't value him," he told the club's official website. "I am annoyed to continue to read that we have been turned down by Ancelotti. This is not true.
"I want to clarify that we have not had a single 'no'. Perhaps only from Bielsa, who had to end negotiations early for personal reasons and he was disappointed. We have a mountain of positive responses and now I have to choose."
Fiorentina boss Sinisa Mihajlovic is among the favourites for a return to the Nerazzurri, where he ended his playing days before working on the coaching staff, but Moratti was unwilling to discuss any move for the 42-year-old.
"Sinisa is under contract with Fiorentina and hence, I wouldn't dare talk about him," he added. "We must be patient. We will do what needs to be done. Don't worry, this is my problem."
