The Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is not worried about the transfer ban being lifted, as he is more than happy with the squad he has available at the moment, even when Drogba, Essien, Mikel and Kalou go to the African Nations Cup in January.
“Now, thanks to this decision we have time to look for new players,” said Ancelotti.
“But we don’t want to take a decision in this moment. At the moment, I’m very happy with the squad, these players, and it’s not necessary at the moment to take new players. I know we will lose four in January but if we maintain the players’ fitness we can do a good period also without the African players.
“Now our focus is on the game on Sunday. We can buy players in January, but now we have other questions to answer. It’s not important now what we can do in January.”
He also said that tomorrows match against Man Utd was not a title decider, because there is the small matter of Arsenal who can still cause an upset. “I think Arsenal have good possibilities to arrive in first place,” he said.
“We can’t think about Liverpool at this moment because they are behind, but Arsenal have a very good team and a very good chance to win.”
In fact if Chelsea lose this weekend, and Arsenal win, the Gunners will only be a game in hand from being at the top.
