England: Chelsea's Search Continues

Another day, another rumor as the search for the new Chelsea coach continues. The latest name to emerge is AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti. The endless parade of candidates is the apparent result of differing wishes inside Stamford Bride; Ancellotti is the reported choice of owner Roman Abramovich, while chief executive Peter Kenyon has his eyes set on Blackburn's Mark Hughes among others.

A move to London makes sense for Ancelotti. During his seven seasons at the San Siro, he's captured all the major titles, including two Champions League crowns, and could be looking for a new challenge. Coming off a fifth-place Serie A finish, a jump to a squad that will be playing in the Champions League next year makes the timing logical.
