Ancelotti: Chelsea winning Champions League not essential

New Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti insists that Blues owner Roman Abramovich has not suggested that the Champions League should be the main target in the coming season.

The Italian is determined to last longer than the seven-month tenure of previous boss Luiz Felipe Scolari who was sacked in February.

"For Chelsea it is important to win the Champions League but it is important to win the Premier League at the same time," said Ancelotti. "We have to do the maximum we can in all competitions."
