Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has rubbished claims his England World Cup players will be rattled by boos at opposition stadiums.
Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and John Terry all face a backlash from fans following their South African flop.
"They can boo,' said Ancelotti, who believes that his players will simply shrug it off. "Ashley does not have a problem with someone doing this. Mentally, John Terry and Ash are top players. They have fantastic characters. If you don't have a fantastic character, you're not a top player. Terry showed fantastic behaviour on the pitch last year. He has never been nervous or without motivation.
"He has always been focused. He has fantastic preparation. I don't think that we'll have a problem this season. He has very good control of his emotions."
