Tianjin Quanjian deny interest in Carlo Ancelotti

Tianjin Quanjian have denied the speculation that they are interested in appointing Carlo Ancelotti as their head coach.

There have been reports that Tianjin have considered replacing Fabio Cannavaro with the former Bayern Munich coach, but the club’s billionaire owner, Shu Yuhui, has denied the reports.

“I haven’t considered changing our coach, at least for now. [Cannavaro and I] have a good partnership and there is a chemistry between us,” Shu told Tianjin TV, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

“We didn’t play well enough in the last two games and I know how gutted Cannavaro must feel. He even said to his players that a year-and-a-half’s effort has been ruined by their weak mentality.

“Cannavaro is working very hard and he really wants the team to get good results so as to bring happiness to our fans.

“I like him very much and I hope with the experience gained at Quanjian, he can continue to improve himself and in the future grow into the best coach in the world.”
