Carlo Ancelotti says Chelsea can still manage historic campaign this season
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti believes that the Blues might still be able to record their best ever season, despite the fact that the London club has an extremely slim chance of winning any silverware this year.
Ancelotti remains optimistic, despite overseeing an abysmal season with Chelsea. The Blues are already out of the Carling Cup and FA Cup competitions. Even worse, it seems unlikely that the reigning English champions will be able to retain their Premier
League crown this season. Chelsea are currently in fifth place in the league table, 12 points behind leaders Manchester United. If the Blues fail to find a way out of their downward spiral, they run the risk of losing their Champions League spot as well.
However, Ancelotti claims that he has been in this situation before. The Blues boss reminded everyone that he faced a similar uphill battle when he was the manager of AC Milan. He added that he could still lead Chelsea out of their current predicament, and
possibly turn this campaign into one of the most successful in the club’s history.
Ancelotti said, “The season is not finished. A lot of times, I've been able to manage this moment. I want to remind you in 2007 it was the same situation (with AC Milan) and the Italian journalists know this. Maybe it (the current season) could be the best
season that we ( can ever have a memory of. Maybe it could be the worst. I don't know.”
The current 2010-11 Champions League tournament remains the only glimmer of hope left for Carlo Ancelotti. The under-fire manager is looking to lead Chelsea to their first ever European crown in the hopes of salvaging their rapidly unraveling season.
The Chelsea manager said, “The Champions League is the most important competition. We are involved this season more than in other competition. We need to be focused and try and do everything to our best. We have to go game-by-game and we have to move on
from this stage.”
Chelsea face FC Copenhagen in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 encounter on 22nd  February.
