Ancelotti: 'Forza Milan!'

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti will be watching the Milan derby tomorrow evening. “I remain a Milanista in my soul, so I hope they win.”

The Coach spent eight years at the helm and was also a star midfielder in Il Grande Milan of the 1980s.

“I remain a Milanista in my soul, so I hope they win,” he told RAI Sport.

However, Ancelotti also rushed to the defence of Inter boss Rafa Benitez following a string of disappointing results.

“Some say he is hanging by a thread and in these cases the Coach is always the first to pay.

“I believe he hasn't much blame in this situation, as he has had to deal with a large number of injuries and that put him at a disadvantage.

“Having said that, replacing Jose Mourinho will not be at all easy, especially as he won everything while at Inter.”
