Carlo Ancelotti has opened up on the situation at Chelsea leading up to his sacking. After recently taking over at Bayern Munich, the Italian is hoping to win a league title in yet another major European league.
He has already won the domestic titles in Italy, France, England, and Spain. Making his mark in Germany is probably one of the few elements that will go on to confirm Ancelotti as one of the greatest coaches ever. Yet, Chelsea did not think twice about sacking him after one poor season in the Premier League.
His final game in charge as the Chelsea manager turned out to be a game against Everton at Goodison Park. Everyone were pretty much aware that Ancelotti would be sacked as early as half time and the manager was the last to know about it. He claimed that there was complete silence in the dressing room when Roman Abramovich paid a visit after the match. Despite being sacked in acrimonious circumstances, Ancelotti says that he has no hard feelings with Abramovich. He also insisted that he maintains a great relationship with all his previous bosses like Florentino Perez and Silvio Berlusconi.
Ancelotti will be judged at Bayern Munich from the progress he makes in the Champions League. He also expects his former club Chelsea to do well under Antonio Conte. “It is usual for the owner to come into the dressing room after a game to say hello.But at that moment, after losing that game, everyone was a little bit embarrassed. There was total silence. I tried to break it with a little speech. Conte is a hard worker: really serious, really professional and always focused on his job. Chelsea are getting a top manager who will look at all the little details,” said the former Chelsea boss.
