Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti denies he tried to wind-up Jose Mourinho ahead of tonight's clash at Inter Milan.

The lead-up to tomorrow night’s game has been fiery with the former Milan Coach quoted as turning up the temperature on this grudge match with Mourinho.

“I don’t want to be Inter’s worst nightmare and I never said anything of the sort,” insisted Ancelotti in the official UEFA Press conference.

“I know that Inter are very eager to win this tournament, there is great respect and we want to play with the maximum fair play, but also the maximum intensity.

“I have never said I am part of an anti-Inter clan. I just work for this club and have total respect for Inter, who for many years were my opponents and will be again this time.”
