Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti still must explain his team's failures to owner Roman Abramovich - even if they do win the Double this season!

Abramovich is still upset over the manner of their Champions League exit.

Blues director Mike Forde said: "The day after we win the title we will ask ourselves why we didn't win the Champions League.

"In football it is about getting better every day, that's what we are aiming for."

He added: "(Jose) Mourinho started with this vision years ago and he passed the torch successfully to other big managers like Guus Hiddink and Ancelotti.

"That the best coaches in the world think we are doing a good job is clear.

"Carlo Ancelotti brought only one assistant with him and that tells us we have a good staff of our own - and that's what it is all about in the end.

"So the way we are working, that's not a secret - every club in the world can have a copy of that.

"The real secret, if you can call it that, is the people who work for us."
