Chelsea boss Ancelotti: Anelka right to stick it up FFF

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has blasted the French Football Federation over their treatment of Nicolas Anelka.

Ancelotti says Anelka got a raw deal from the French authorities.

"I spoke with Nicolas for him to explain to me the celebration," said Ancelotti of Anelka's handcuffs moment against MSK Zilina.

"He said it was against the France Federation. I agree with him. I think he's had a bad deal. I don't know if he's upset, but he's putting in fantastic performances. Maybe, for this reason, he has more motivation to play well.

"Obviously, if he stays here to train he can maintain a good physical condition, but for a player it's better to play for a national team."
