Carlo Ancelotti leaves Chelsea


Carlo Ancelotti celebrates Chelsea's first League and Cup Double with team captain John Terry

Carlo Ancelotti left his post at Stamford Bridge late last week after rumours surrounding his future as manager of Chelsea.

Ancelotti was confirmed as the new Chelsea manager after agreeing to a three-year contract worth £9 million. This contract made him the highest earning manager in the world. Ancelotti, succeeding temporary replacement Guus Hiddink, became the club's fourth permanent manager in 21 months, following José Mourinho, Avram Grant, and Luiz Felipe Scolari. He is also the third Italian to manage Chelsea, after Gianluca Vialli and Claudio Ranieri.

On 9 August 2009, Ancelotti won his first trophy as Chelsea manager, the Community Shield, beating Manchester United on penalties, following a 2–2 draw. His first Premier League game in charge of the Blues ended in a 2–1 home victory over Hull City on 15 August 2009. Chelsea lost their first game under Ancelotti at the DW Stadium against Wigan Athletic on 26 September, losing 3–1. They were eliminated from the League Cup on 2 December, reaching the quarter-finals stage after a penalty shootout defeat to Blackburn Rovers after a 3–3 draw at Ewood Park. Chelsea crashed out of the Champions League on 16 March 2010 after a 1–3 aggregate loss to Internazionale, having lost both home and away, in the Round of 16 stage.

On 9 May 2010, Ancelotti led Chelsea to win the Premier League title, beating Manchester United by one point and setting scoring records. The team finished the campaign with 103 goals, becoming the first team to score more than 100 goals in the top flight of English football since Tottenham Hotspur in the 1962–63 First Division season (Tottenham finished second). Chelsea secured the title with a 8–0 victory over Wigan Athletic at Stamford Bridge. Ancelotti also became the first Italian manager to win Premier League; and only the fifth manager overall in the league's eighteen seasons.

Carlo Ancelotti said:
I feel very upset to be leaving this wonderful club, Chelsea are a amazing team and i enjoyed my time here, i wish the club and the next manager all the best for the future.

Pearson in talks with Blackburn



Hull City manager Nigel Pearson has today opened talks with Blackburn over the vacant managerial position at Ewood park. Pearson has been said to have fallen out with the new Hull chairman and is expected to leave the club in the next few days. Blackburn's new owners say that they adore Pearson's managerial abilities and he would be the perfect manager to take the club forward.

Assem Allam said:
Me and Nigel have had a falling out in which he acted in a very aggressive way towards myself and my assistant, i want a manager who the fans will like and who has the right attitude to take the club forward and Nigel doesn't have that, we are drawing up a shortlist on who could be the next manager but we are still unsure.

I am over the moon to be back at Hull, i love the club and its fans, they deserve more than Championship football they belong in the Premier League and i will try to get them back there. Me and the chairman have drawn up a few players i would like to sign and i don't know if you have seen them, i am backed brilliantly financially by the board and i am looking forward to working with Bullard, Simpson and Mclean as i can pass on my experience to the strikers and i am looking to gain promotion through their goals.

Will Le Fondre be on his way to Hull ?

I think you should get Leigh Griffiths rather than LeFondre and play him as a poacher

Attacking Midfielder Tijani Belaid joined from Sparta Prague for £1,000,000 after he was upset there, he joined Hull because he said it will be a challange for him to try and help them gain promotion into the Premier League.
