Jamie Carragher picks who’s better out of Mourinho and Ancelotti

Jamie Carragher has revealed who he thinks has been the better manager during their careers out of Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti.

Chelsea fans have been privileged to see both men in the dugout at Stamford Bridge during their managerial careers with the pair lifting the Premier League title four times between them.

When asked to choose between Mourinho or Ancelotti, Carragher told Sky Sports: “Carlo is my mate he used to live around the corner from me.”

“Ancelotti is on four Champions Leagues now ,for what Jose did at Porto and winning it at Inter Milan, who very rarely win the Champions League, I’m going to go with Jose.”

Mourinho has had two separate spells with the London club and is regarded as the Blues greatest ever manager and whilst a third spell in west London is unlikely his name was chanted by supporters in last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Brentford.

Ancelotti’s stay at Stamford Bridge should have been longer, he won the double in his first season and became the first Italian manager to win the Premier League and he followed that up with a second place finish the season after but was dismissed by Roman Abramovich.

The Italian is currently managing Real Madrid and is on course to win La Liga with his side sitting top of the table and is still in the Champions League.

Mourinho is currently out of work having been sacked by AS Roma earlier this season and it will be interesting to see if the Portuguese icon takes on a new job this summer.
