Carlo Ancelotti will not coach again this season as he intends to take a 10-month break from football following his departure from Bayern Munich.
The 58-year-old Italian left Bundesliga champions Bayern last week, following a heavy Champions League defeat to Paris St Germain, and has since been linked with a return to Milan.
The Rossoneri, who Ancelotti twice led to the Champions League trophy, have made a disappointing start to the Serie A campaign, sparking rumours that boss Vincenzo Montella could be on his way out.

But the former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach has no plans to take another job in the current campaign.
“For the next 10 months I will relax, I will not coach another team,” he told Sky Sport Italia. On his sacking at Bayern, he added: “It’s better to stay quiet on that.”
