Chelsea boss Ancelotti has sympathy for Man Utd crock Valencia

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti hopes Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia makes a full recovery from his horror ankle injury.

Ancelotti sent good wishes to Manchester United's Antonio Valencia who broke his ankle on Champions League duty.

"Valencia was unlucky because the defender didn't make a bad tackle," said the Italian coach.

"I want to wish him a quick recovery. The tempo of the game here is different from other countries but I don't think that here there are more bad tackles.

"There is fair play here and I have trust in the referees. If there is a bad tackle then the referee can judge."
