Chelsea boss Ancelotti: I refuse to discuss Rooney while he is Man Utd player

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti refused to discuss moving for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney last night.

After victory at Spartak Moscow, Ancelotti was asked about the possibility of signing Rooney in January after the forward made it clear he would like to leave Manchester United. Ancelotti had the air of a man already running out of patience with the speculation.

"I think that I have to answer this question for a lot of time in the future," he said.

"I want to be clear, I don't like that some coaches speak about my players and I don't want to do the same. I have respect for Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson, it is their problem and I don't want to speak about this."
