NEW YORK (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain’s Carlo Ancelotti will manage against his former team when the French club plays a preseason exhibition against Champions League finalist Chelsea on July 22 in the first soccer game at new Yankee Stadium.

Coming off Saturday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool for its seventh FA Cup, Chelsea plays at Bayern Munich on May 19 hoping for its first European title.

Hired by Chelsea in June 2009, Ancelotti managed the Blues to the Premier League-FA Cup double in his first season, then was fired two hours after a second-place finish in the league last May. He was hired by PSG on Dec. 30.
