Ancelotti to face Abramovich inquest even if Chelsea wins double

London, May 5 (ANI): Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich will want to know from coach Carlo Ancelotti why his side fared so badly in the Champions League, even if the Blues win the double title this season.

Director Mike Forde said: "The day after we win the title, we will ask ourselves why we didn't win the Champions League."

"In football, it is about getting better every day, that's what we are aiming for," The Sun quoted Forde, as saying.

Chelsea will lift the Premier League crown if they beat Wigan on Sunday, and then, have an FA Cup final with Portsmouth on May 15.

Even if Chelsea wins both, the disappointment of their exit to Jose Mourinho's Inter Milan in the Champions League last 16 remains, as it dealt a big blow to Abramovich's dream of making the club biggest on the planet.

"Mourinho started with this vision years ago and he passed the torch successfully to other big managers like Guus Hiddink and Ancelotti. That the best coaches in the world think we are doing a good job is clear," Forde said.

"Carlo Ancelotti brought only one assistant with him and that tells us we have a good staff of our own - and that's what it is all about in the end," he said.

"So, the way we are working, that's not a secret - every club in the world can have a copy of that. The real secret, if you can call it that, is the people who work for us," Forde added. (ANI)
