The Italian was sacked as manager of the La Liga giants earlier this month after failing to deliver a trophy at the Santiago Bernabeu this season.

This then lead to speculation that a return to the dugout at the San Siro was on the cards after admitting to the Rossoneri’s official TV station that he had held talks with vice-president Adriano Galliani over a potential return (via Sky Sports).

However, Ancelotti has spent over a week mulling over his future and has decided to press ahead with plans to take a deserved break from football and broke the news via his official Twitter account:

It is no surprise that the Serie A outfit attempted to lure Ancelotti, who led the club to a pair of Champions League titles during 2001-09, back as they have fallen from grace since his departure.

A 10th place finish in the league this year means the Rossoneri will not compete in Europe for the second successive season.
