Chelsea boss Ancelotti proud of his golden oldies
Ancelotti is happy to praise his over 30s club for the way they have performed all season.
He said: "When a player is 30, 32, 33 years old, it's not old. He is a player in the middle of his career.
"Maybe 20 years ago when I finished my career at 33 I was an old player. Now training has improved, there is more prevention, and so the career of a player is longer."
He said: "A player in his 30s is in his prime. They have experience and personality. I think this is the best moment of their career.
"I don't think that every player can go on like Maldini at 40 years old, but until 35, a player can be at their best."
