Ancelotti sacked (wrongly in my eyes….)

Well I guess we all knew it was coming but we just didn’t want to believe it. The man that led Chelsea to their first Double just 12 months ago has been given the boot from Chelsea. This for me is a grave mistake, and if anyone deserves the sack it is whoever forced Ray Wilkins out of the club when Chelsea were flying away at the top of the Premiership.

There was an official announcement released on the Chelsea website which simply said: “Chelsea Football Club can confirm that Carlo Ancelotti parted company with the club today (Sunday, 22nd May).

“The owner and board would like to thank Carlo for his contribution and achievements since taking over as manager in July 2009, which included winning the Double for the first time in the club’s history.

“However, this season’s performances have fallen short of expectations and the club feels the time is right to make this change ahead of next season’s preparations.

“Carlo will always be welcome at Stamford Bridge, where he will be given the reception and respect his position in our history deserves.

“Chelsea’s long-term football objectives and ambitions remain unchanged and we will now be concentrating all our efforts on identifying a new manager.

“There will be no further comment until that appointment is made.”

Ancelotti had Chelsea playing the best football I have any seen in England, with massive wins every week, until the fateful day when Ray Wilkins was removed from the dressing room. A day of massive stupidity!

    I agree too…. Ancelotti was a great manager.
    He did wonders in his first season and all players admired him. He was helpless this season after the sacking of RAY WILKINS and injury to key players + the owner’s unrealistic expectations made his job even more difficult.
    Still he did a pretty decent stuff in 2011 as Chelsea finished 2nd (while most people thought that they won’t even qualify for UCL). Nice work Carlo!
    Chelsea won’t be able to find a better replacement for sure!

    and ray wikins should be taken back.
