Ancelotti: Chelsea is not Mourinho's team

3 January 2010 11:50

(GSM) - Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says Jose Mourinho is wrong to speak about Chelsea as though he owns the team. Mourinho, now manager of Inter Milan, is preparing to face his former side in the UEFA Champions League at the last 16 stage.

The Portuguese tactician coached Chelsea for more than three years and enjoyed success as Blues manager before being sacked in 2007.

Since his departure from Stamford Bridge he has used the term 'my Chelsea' but Ancelotti has reminded the former Chelsea manager that it is Roman Abramovich who owns the team.

"It's not true. It's not his team. It's the team of Roman Abramovich," said Ancelotti.

"It's not mine, it's Roman Abramovich's. Mourinho had the honour to train this club and I do too. This team is Roman Abramovich's team."

Avram Grant, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Guus Hiddink have all had spells at the Chelsea helm since Mourinho left but Ancelotti is not concerned by the quick turnover of managers in West London.

"Now is the time (for Chelsea to stick with a manager)," said the former AC Milan coach.

"Pressure is normal when you do this job and I am not afraid of pressure. Here it is different, there is less pressure than the last year in Milan for me."
