Nothing special if Chelsea wins title: Ancelotti

London, Apr 25 (ANI): Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has said that it will be nothing special if he leads Chelsea to the title in his first season.

Former boss Jose Mourinho has constantly bragged about his 2005 achievement of winning the Premier League at the first attempt.

But Ancelotti is on course to top the Special One by leading Chelsea to the league and FA Cup double, News of the World reports.

Taking a swipe at Mourinho, the Chelsea boss said: "To win the title in my first season would be a good thing but nothing special - it's my job.

"Chelsea wanted to take me as a coach and they hoped my quality was good to train the team. If we win, I'm happy for the club. My aim is to work here and if we win the title, it could be that I did a good job, nothing else. After that we think about the next season. It's not revenge."

The former AC Milan boss is the fourth manager to take the Blues' helm since Mourinho left in September 2007 - but he is still fighting to step out from his shadow.

Especially after Mourinho boasted before his Inter Milan side knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League this season: "Nobody had ever won the title in their first season at Chelsea. I went down in history."

Ancelotti is adamant his players can handle the strain, despite appearing to buckle under the pressure of United's title assault. (ANI)
