Chelsea's Obi Mikel: Ancelotti went mad, crazy in Italian and English!

John Obi Mikel admits Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti went "crazy" at halftime of their FA Cup win over Cardiff City. The two teams went into the break at 1-1, but Chelsea, with Ancelotti's words ringing in their ears, ran-out eventual winners 4-1.

"When we went back into the dressing today the manager was crazy, so we went into the second half knowing what we had to do," revealed Mikel.

"He went mad at us. He shouted at us in English and Italian - everything. When he's mad he mixes everything up. We knew we could do better. But we came out in the second half and that's what we gave him."
