London, Oct 7 (IANS) Former Manchester United star David Beckham has backed his former coach Carlo Ancelotti to make a successful return to the English Premier League.

Beckham played under Ancelotti at AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain during the closing stages of his career, either side of the Italian lifting the EPL title with Chelsea in 2009-10, Sky Sports reported on Tuesday.

The 56-year-old coach has also been linked with the managerial vacancy at Liverpool in the aftermath of Brendan Rodgers’ sacking on Sunday but former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp is now the odds-on favourite to take the reins at Anfield.

Asked whether he could envisage Ancelotti returning to England, Beckham said, “I can, because he’s a manager that people want to be in charge of a club.” 

“He’s a manager that players love playing for. I was lucky that he brought me in on loan when he was at AC Milan, I played for him at PSG. So, I know what he’s all about.”

The players hold him in high regard and he’s a winner.” “He’ll fit in at any club he goes into because he’s a manager who knows how to win games and how to win trophies. Whichever club he goes to, he will be successful,” the former England skipper added.
