    • Gianfranco Zola

    • Paolo Maldini
    • Dennis Wise
    • Bruno Demichelis
    • Paul Clement
    • Nobody - Carlo can manage on his own with remaining staff

I think I've sparked up media rumours about Maldini after mentioning it as a joke :lol: But when I come to think about it, it seems likely. Maldini wants to go into coaching and has a fantastic relationship with Ancelotti.

But I want Zola to replace Wilkins.

Dennis Wise, complete leader, role model, and has blue blood running through his entire body! bring him back, and watch those press interviewers worry what to say infront of him! ;)

Sorry but NO.. loved wisey as player and captain but dont think he is up to this job .Would much prefer Zola.

There is talk that Emenalo could be given the role, which in my eyes would not be a good sign. I can't see that Carlo would be wanting someone with LESS experience than Ray alongside him!!! Would mean that it is all done from above. Looks like it could well be an appointment from inside the club, i would be happy if Clem was promoted, he is a good guy and knows what he is talking about...

'No decision has been made but I think we will take a name from the club and not from outside,' Ancelotti said. 'I read in the newspapers about [Paolo] Maldini, [Filipo] Galli, [Gianfranco] Zola. It is not true. I want to speak with the club and we will take the decision together but I am sure it will not be an Italian.'

Another name put forward by the papers is Michael Emenalo who has been at Chelsea since 2007.

'Michael Emenalo is doing a fantastic job as head opposition scout and he is already working very close to me. He is already an assistant,' explained Ancelotti who is not new to backroom staff changes. Similar happened when he was working in Italy and he is confident the Chelsea boat won't be rocked unduly.

'We will maintain the same type of training, we don't want to change. We have the possibility to maintain how we worked last season. The staff is able to maintain the same job without Ray.

'I have experience in football. Sometimes clubs take these decisions but with experience we move on and we maintain focus.'

- Carlo Ancelotti
