Chelsea squad not good enough: Ancelotti

London, Apr. 20 (ANI): Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he is facing the Chelsea axe because his squad is not good enough.That claim will stun owner Roman Abramovich, whose current stars cost a staggering 271.65 million pounds in transfer fees alone.

Boss Ancelotti reckons his team will finish the season empty-handed because he did not have enough cover to cope with a mid-term injury crisis.

The Sun quoted him as saying: “I don’t think the squad was good enough this year. At the start of the season, we couldn’t have envisaged having very important players out at the same time.”

“We struggled to manage when we were without Lampard, Drogba, Essien, Terry and Alex,” he added.

Latest figures show Chelsea have splashed 185 million pounds in the last five years putting them behind Manchester City, Spurs and Liverpool in the big-spenders league. (ANI)
