Sacked Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti is unlikely to become the next Arsenal manager because of the current state at the Premier League club, according to Greame Souness.

“I think [Ancelotti] is a big manager and if you look at the jobs he’s had – Real Madrid, PSG, Chelsea – you know Arsenal are a fabulous club, but right now it’s a difficult job, whoever gets it.”
