Chelsea defender Alex: Ancelotti has transformed atmosphere

Chelsea defender Alex says manager Carlo Ancelotti has transformed the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge.

In the opinion of Alex, Ancelotti has created the perfect environment for Chelsea to win trophies.

"As a coach he has shown to us that he has real ability and in his first season in the Premier League he has already come up against some hard tests and passed them," he told the Daily Mail.

"But it's not just him. It's the whole coaching department he has assembled. Everything they do for us, on and off the pitch, is geared towards making it possible for us to perform and win trophies. Everything is set up for it and now it is simply up to the players.

"They want to know if you have any problems, off the pitch, and if there is anything they can do to help. They want to be sure that my family is well. That my life is good away from the club.

"The club has had to deal with changes at the top but now we have stability, and in terms of being ready to win trophies, I feel we are. There is no question we are."
