Ancelotti admits Shevchenko influenced Chelsea decision

New Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti admits striker Andriy Shevchenko was influential in his move from AC Milan.

"Yes I spoke with Sheva. I know the facilities at the club, I saw the training ground at Cobham - and I like it," said Ancelotti.

Shevchenko could have a place in Ancelotti's squad next season, acting as an interpreter with Chelsea's players.
