Abramovich offers cash backing for Ancelotti
Roman Abramovich has assured Carlo Ancelotti that his job is safe for now in the wake of Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday that has left them with 10 points from the last 11 games. Ancelotti will also have the money to bid for Benfica defender David Luiz this month.
the chance of failing to qualify for the Champions League now hangs over Chelsea after the defeat to Wolves which was their sixth of the season & leaves them in fifth place & nine points adrift of leaders Manchester United who have played one fewer game.
Yet as of last night, senior figures at the club were confident that Abramovich & his close aide & club director Eugene Tenenbaum were not preparing to make the same kind of swift decisions that brought to an finish the employment of Jose Mourinho & Luiz Felipe Scolari.
