Jamie Carragher believes Carlo Ancelotti would be the wrong appointment for Arsenal.

The 60-year-old Italian is reportedly in the running to become Unai Emery’s long-term successor after he was sacked by Napoli earlier this week.

Ancelotti would provide Arsenal with a wealth of experience having won the Premier League with Chelsea, the Champions League and Serie A with AC Milan, Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain and the Champions League with Real Madrid.

But Carragher believes the Arsenal job requires a manager who is more capable of rebuilding teams.

‘I don’t agree with Ancelotti,’ Carragher told Sky Sports.

‘I think Ancelotti makes very good teams even better and takes them this next step.

‘This is a big job. This is a rebuilding job.

‘I don’t think Ancelotti has ever really been into clubs before and taken a group of players like this.

‘He’s always gone to top teams where it’s more about man-management and getting the best out of real top players, getting them onside.

‘I think a lot more is needed here – this is a rebuilding job.’
