Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has taken a swipe at new Liverpool signing Joe Cole.
The Blues allowed Cole to leave for Liverpool on a free transfer and then bought Yossi Benayoun for £6million, with many questioning the wisdom of the deal.
But Ancelotti told The Sun: "Joe Cole is quicker than Benayoun but Yossi is better tactically. He understands what I tell him.
"Yossi is a very intelligent player. He knows everything about the game.
"Cole and Benayoun are different players and everyone has their own opinion, but we are happy to have Yossi here at Chelsea."
