Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has no interest in leading Italy as he enjoys “day-to-day work” at club level.
Italy are currently in good hands with Roberto Mancini, who guided the Azzurri to Euro 2020 glory.
Mancini is contracted to Italy until 2026, having overseen the country setting a new world record of 37 matches unbeaten.
A 26-time Italy international, former Parma, Juventus, Milan and Napoli boss Ancelotti was asked about coaching at international level.
“I don’t know, I don’t know,” Ancelotti told ESPN Colombia as Italy gear up for their decisive Group C contest with Switzerland on Friday.
“I like the day-to-day work of training with teams. I’d have to think about a national team role, but I don’t think so.”
Ancelotti is back in charge of Madrid for a second time after leading Los Blancos to Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup and Copa del Rey glory during his first spell between 2013 and 2015.
Madrid are second in LaLiga this season, a point behind Real Sociedad during the international break, though they have played a game less.
Ancelotti’s Madrid also top Champions League Group D, two points ahead of Inter through four matchdays.
