Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti can understand why Jose Mourinho would clash with journalists in Italy.

Former Blues manager Mourinho is in the middle of a row with the Italian journalists union after clashing with a reporter following Inter Milan's draw with Atalanta on Saturday.

Ancelotti laughed: "I know that Mourinho has had some problems with Italian journalists in the last few days and sometimes I have also thought about attacking someone, but I have never done it. I come from a good school, the Italian one, and I like to respect the work of everyone, so, as for me, you're all safe."
