The Daily Mail says Ancelotti was first off the team bus when it rolled to a halt at Chelsea's training ground in Cobham at around 9.30pm on Sunday.
He wanted to shake his players and staff by the hand and thank them for their efforts during his two years at the club. Ancelotti had been fired at Goodison Park a few hours earlier and was locked in various conversations on the journey back.
His intention had been to bid farewell, wish people luck, then head for home. An hour later he was in the Plough in Cobham, having a pint with John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard, coach Paul Clement and some of the medical staff.
A couple of hours further into the night and the same group could be found in Whisky Mist, an exclusive Park Lane club, where the Black Eyed Peas were DJ-ing earlier in the month.
It was an impromptu leaving bash for a likeable man at a venue which can boast the likes of Prince Harry, Robert de Niro, Jay-Z and Beyonce among its customers.
