In an interview granted to an Italian media and relayed by the Dailymail, Ancelotti did not close the door to the possibility of one day training the Canadian selection. ” I could train a national team (…), maybe during the 2026 World Cup, why not. If it’s Canada, why not! I would love to, that’s for sure. »
