They are hosting Shanghai SIPG in the return leg of the FA Cup semifinal (they lost 2-1 in Shanghai in the first leg), but somehow Carlo Ancelotti’s name was mentioned in the Press conference before this game, and Luiz Felipe Scolari gave a rather unexpected answer when asked how he feels about the rumors linking the former Bayern Munich coach with the job at Guangzhou Evergrande.
If Ancelotti is offered the opportunity to come to Guangzhou, he should consider grasping it
the Evergrande coach said, looking very serious, not in a mood for a… cynical answer.
Evergrande is a fantastic club, with great working environment. Not only for Ancelotti, Evergrande is a good destination for any coach who is linked with the club
the Brazilian said. Scolari has been working at Guangzhou since June 2015, and his contract is about to expire on the last day of November.
My current contract at Evergrande runs until Nov.30 and of course, I’m willing to fulfil it. In the meantime, I will do my utmost to win as many titles as I can
the former Brazil coach said. Guangzhou are huge favourites to win the championship in China, have the chance to win the Cup as well, but fell to the same opponent, Shanghai SIPG, in the AFC Champions League quarterfinals, despite their 5-1 home win in the return leg(!).
