Chelsea boss Ancelotti fears for Italian football after Ballon d'Or snub

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has mixed emotions about being the only Italian nominee in this year's Ballon d'Or awards. Ancelotti is up for Coach of the Year after last season's Double success.

He said: "If I remember correctly last year was worse: there was not even the one Italian candidate. If it were not for Mourinho and Inter, we'd be in the dark.

"Have I switched off the light on the Italian league? No, it'll never be extinguished for me. I see all the games I can on TV, at my house.

"I still follow AC Milan."
