Chelsea boss Ancelotti shrugs off Anelka penalty antics

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti shrugged off the manner of Nicolas Anelka's penalty during their Champions League win over Marseille.

Anelka's nonchalant 28th-minute penalty may not have been to Ancelotti's liking but the Italian refused to criticise his striker in public.

"I don't tell Anelka how to shoot a penalty. If he scores I'm happy," he said.

"I've never seen Anelka scared or nervous. He's always quiet and calm. He's a good character."
