Chelsea icon Hoddle: Crazy to dump Ancelotti
Roman Abramovich is intent on bringing in Guus Hiddink to work with coaches such as Marco van Basten and Gianfranco Zola, but Hoddle says he should stick with Ancelotti if they are to have any hope of toppling Barcelona or Manchester United from the top of the European tree.
"It will be a mistake to change the manager if the owner is searching for someone to bring him the Champions League," Hoddle told the Daily Express.
"It might be realistic to aim for the title, but not for the Champions League while this Barcelona team are around. In the past, teams such as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Ajax and Liverpool dominated Europe for years - and Barcelona can do the same."
