Los Angeles, July 19 (ANI): English footballer David Beckham has stressed upon new Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti making a massive impact in the Premier League and also believes that he will lead Chelsea to their first league title since the heady days of Jose Mourinho.

Beckham also out-lined the reasons why the Italian's consummate professionalism will herald a Chelsea resurrection.

"Chelsea are so lucky because Carlo is a great man and a great manager. He can definitely make Chelsea champions again. No doubt about it. And I say that even though everybody knows I have Manchester United in my heart," News of the World quoted Beckham, as saying.Yes, it will be difficult because the Premier League is totally different to the Serie A but he has great experience and I am convinced he will be a great success in England, too," he added.

Beckham further highlighted Ancelotti' professionalism and dedication to that he puts onto his work. He also provided an insight into what Chelsea players would experience under the 50 year-old.

"The players can expect to work with the ultimate professional. He works so hard and is so organised and dedicated. Carlo will be the first on the training pitch and the last off it because he just loves working with the players himself. That's his passion. You won't find him sitting in his office leaving it to someone else. He is very hands on," said Beckham.

"That's how he was at Milan and I'm sure that's how he will be at Chelsea, leading by example, leading the team. But while he is serious about his work and his football, he is also a lot of fun to work with. He is very relaxed, very down-to- earth and likes a joke," he added. (ANI)
