London, July 18(ANI): Carlo Ancelotti on the eve of his first game as manager of Chelsea, warned the Blues stars that none of them are untouchable under his new regime at the Stamford Bridge.
Ancelotti, who will lead Chelsea into action in Saturday's friendly with the Seattle Sounders, revealed that he has been surprised by the quality of the squad he has inherited and insisted that there would be no guarantees for anyone.
"I don't want to choose my first team. Chelsea are a great team because we have 25 great players - and for me it is impossible to choose the first team," The Daily Express quoted Ancelotti, as saying.
"It may be that I never want to choose. I want 25 players that can play well for Chelsea," he added.
Meanwhile, Ancelotti shrugged off fears that English language would be a hitch for him in communicating properly with his players.
"The language is not so easy but I am improving every day because I speak always in English. I have a lot of meetings where I speak English, and now is better than 10 days ago. It has not been a problem to speak with the players. They help me and speak slowly and I understand," Ancelotti said. (ANI)
