However, Ancelotti turned down the offer, while opting to wait for a club to hire him. The Azzurris have failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the first time they will be missing out since 1958.
Ventura was sacked, while Carlo Tavecchio resigned as the president of the FIGC.
“The FIGC contacted me, I spoke to them. I told them I’m honoured that so many people want me to coach the national team,” Ancelotti told La Domenica Sportiva.
“However, that would be like a whole other job. Working for the national team is different to being a club coach, as I still enjoy training and working every day.
“Italian football also has some problems that need to be resolved. I realise there is a conflict of interests between clubs and federations, as there is in Germany, France and England, but right now Italian football needs the Federation to impose its power over the clubs and impose new rules to improve the situation.
“For example, I think Serie A would benefit greatly by being reduced from 20 teams to 18 and I know there are clubs who are ready to vote for that.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
