Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho has told Carlo Ancelotti to get a grip of the controversy swirling around Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole.

Cole, brought to Chelsea from Arsenal in a cloak-and-dagger operation that saw both player and manager Mourinho fined, is being chased by Real Madrid and Barcelona.

But Mourinho said: "Ashley has to look after himself.

"I called him a couple of days ago because I care about him.

"My advice to him is don't leave England.

"Ancelotti and his family must give him advice. But, for me, he will not help himself by moving abroad."
