Former England international Ashley Cole has clarified his comments about Carlo Ancelotti after he appeared to sound critical about his former Chelsea manager. The left-back won four Premier League titles during his time at Stamford Bridge, and one of them came under the guidance of Ancelotti during the 2009/10 season.
Speaking on BT Sport, Cole suggested that Ancelotti would normally not go much into coaching, and this suited his style of play, he said: “Ancelotti was my kind of manager. You don’t need much coaching. Just go out and play.” His comments thereafter brought plenty of stick via social media, and he went on to clarify that he was only saying it in a positive sense, he tweeted: “No, no, no,my comments about Carlo Ancelotti you guys are not understanding, do you really think he has no tactical ideas? He has won everything, I was saying he was the best for me because he knows how to get the best out of a team and players please understand.”
