Sturridge and Borini to step up in January says Ancelotti, but what about Di Santo?

The Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti says that he has no need to buy any new players to cover Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou when they go to the African Nations Cup in January.

Chelsea have been linked to many strikers lately, now that the FIFA transfer ban has been suspended until after the appeal has been heard. But Ancelotti seems to be happy with the team and the reserves he already has at his finger tips.

“Unless we suffer injuries, we are determined not to make changes to the team,” said Ancelotti.

“We have two forwards going to the Africa Cup of Nations – Drogba and Kalou – but climbing on their shoulders are two little boys with a great future: Sturridge and Borini – an 18-year-old from Bologna who is very, very, very interesting.”

He failed to mention that Franco Di Santo will also be back from his loan at Blackburn with a lot more playing time under his belt than both Sturridge and Borini, who have played a total of 20 minutes for the first team this season. Does this mean that Ancelotti rates Borini higher than Di Santo?

    Borini is Italian and that sentiment could come up at times. I still believe Di Sancto would be better in January as replacement for Didier if given the opportunity cos of the premiership experience he now has. We are yet to see Borini play.

    I would prefer di santo 2 boroni cus he has premiership experience nd if given a chance,he would prove himself.
