Goran Eriksson backs Ancelotti to become Arsenal manager

Sven Goran Eriksson has given a nod to Carlo Ancelotti becoming Arsenal's next manager.

Ancelotti is a top candidate for the vacant position at the Emirates following his sack by Napoli on Tuesday night.

The Gunners are on the hunt for a new permanent boss after sacking struggling Spaniard Unai Emery at the end of November.

Freddie Ljungberg is in charge at the Emirates on a temporary capacity since the sack of struggling Spaniard Unai Emery at the end of November.

Eriksson believes Ancelotti is a “top manager”, backing him to seal a return to the Premier League.

“I am sure he will soon find a new bench, where he can return to express his greatness,” he told Calcio Napoli.

“Yesterday I saw the Napoli game, they played fantastic football, bringing home a great victory.

“Ancelotti’s return to the Premier League would be good for him. For him, everything would be possible.

“He is a top manager, a coach who knows managing large groups and big teams, and then Arsenal is a world-class club, it would be nice to see Carlo on the Gunners bench.”

Ancelotti has made his mark in European football, boasting a stellar CV that includes Champions League triumphs with AC Milan and Real Madrid.

The 60-year-old also guided Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea to a famous Premier League and FA Cup double in the 2009/10 season, before being sacked just a year later despite finishing second in the league.
