London, Feb.10 (ANI): Carlo Ancelotti has declared himself Emperor of the English Premier League just eight months after landing on British soil.
Surveying his position from the top of the table, he pronounced 'I came, I saw, I conquered'.
Tonight, Chelsea take on Everton, and the proud Italian is ready to extend his empire across the whole of Europe, after quelling troublesome Arsenal at the weekend.
He explained: "Caesar's phrase comes to mind when I think of what has happened this season. I have come to England, seen what it is like and, before I leave, I want to conquer the FA Cup, the Premier League and the Champions League."
"I have not lost my sense of humour since coming here. In England it rains every day but still people sometimes tell me it is a beautiful day," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"That's when I tell them about Julius Caesar, who spent so much time in Britain yet, in the end, opted to move back to the Amalfi coast in Italy. But I am not in any hurry to leave. The competition here is very strong and it is not going to be easy," Ancelotti said.
Ancelotti has already won one battle, after keeping his vow not to sign any new players in the January transfer window.
He laughed: "I had a wager with some sceptical journalists that I would strip naked if Chelsea signed anybody in January. Luckily for them, I won the bet! (ANI)
