LONDON - Chelsea’s Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly taking legal advice from the League Managers’ Association on quitting the club, as he longer feels he is in control of the players.
With Chelsea losing three of their last four games, Ancelotti is also upset by the recent axing of No 2 Ray Wilkins and the bringing in of unknown Nigerian Michael Emenalo as his replacement, The Sun reports.e said: “You compare me with Ferguson, it’s a different position. Ferguson has total control of the team. I have just technical direction. Full stop. OK?”
Ancelotti spoke out with Chelsea reeling from the St Andrew’s defeat and they are now only ahead of United on goal difference.
He was also attempting to counter continuing criticism over the shock departure of Wilkins and the controversial appointment of Emenalo.
The revelation is seen as final confirmation of what has long been suspected about the Abramovich era - that the board and not the coach decides the ins and outs at the club, including players.
The coach is expected just to accept it and get on with it. (ANI)
