AC Milan's Gattuso: Ancelotti can handle big Chelsea egos

AC Milan ace Rino Gattuso says Carlo Ancelotti can handle the egos inside the Chelsea dressing room. Former Rangers star Gattuso told The Sun: "That will not be a problem for him, not a problem at all.

"If there are any attitudes that do not fit in with his way of thinking at Chelsea, they will learn very quickly they need to change that attitude.

"In England, Alex Ferguson is famous for his treatment in the dressing room when things are not as he wants, and the same is true with Carlo. When he is not happy you will know about it.

"He does not act that way to try to be a big man or because he likes the sound of his own voice. He does it because he knows it is for the good of the team.

"Ferguson and Carlo are two of the most successful managers in the world, so it proves their methods are right. With Carlo, the players are under no doubt who is boss.

"I know Mourinho left a big legacy at Chelsea - and perhaps that has not helped managers who have joined since he has left. But Carlo can create a bigger legacy than that of Jose - of that I am sure.

"Carlo is an expert in the Champions League and that is still something Chelsea are missing, even though they have come close.

"If anybody can guide them to the biggest prize it will be Carlo, there is nobody more qualified."
