Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says off the field turmoil won't affect his players.

He shrugs off the recent blow-ups at Stamford Bridge – the club has been banned from the next two transfer windows for making illegal inducements to the young winger Gaël Kakuta and, in a separate development, Peter Kenyon has stood down as the chief executive.
