Chelsea ace Drogba: Ancelotti showed right attitude from day one

Didier Drogba has heaped praise on Carlo Ancelotti over the way he arrived at Chelsea in the summer.

Drogba has impressed this season under Ancelotti, who joined from AC Milan.

The Ivory Coast striker said: "Carlo is one of us, a great person, one of the family.

"He arrived full of glory with a serious honours list of European and worldwide triumphs won with Milan.

"He could have brought with him an even more powerful staff, he could have changed or undone or done anything, he could have had detached relationships and only been professionally cool with the dressing room.

"Instead he talked to us with clarity, simplicity and kindness, almost like a father. He didn't carry out revolutions, only several Italian style retouches and adjustments.

"And now the squad are flying, in attack we are getting an avalanche of goals and we are really having a ball of a time. Yes, Ancelotti is the best and even he has said we can win everything."
