Chelsea boss Ancelotti reveals his Mourinho truce

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he has a truce with Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

The pair traded barbs when they both worked in Italy.

So when Inter knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League, it was perceived as a personal victory for Mourinho; and when Ancelotti achieved the Double, something Mourinho never did at Chelsea, it seemed to be a counter-strike in this battle of egos.

But a truce came prior to the Champions League clash with Inter, in the tunnel at the San Siro.

"I approached him," says Ancelotti.

"Our relationship is good and I want to maintain this because he is one of the best coaches in the world."
