Chelsea boss Ancelotti has full confidence in youngsters for Marseille clash

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has confidence in his young players ahead of their Champions League encounter with Marseille.

Ancelotti was quick to highlight that, not so long ago, his team were being accused of being too old.

"It's a very good moment," said the Chelsea manager, clearly delighted to have caught out his inquisitors. "Some people say the squad are young and have no experience. Others say I have all old players. It's a difficult job for me.

"In my opinion we have a good mix - young players who are improving and others with experience. I don't think a player is old at 30. They have experience enough to play a fantastic game."
