Ex-Chelsea boss Ancelotti disappointed by latest Italian football scandal

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti fears for Italian football over the latest off-field scandal to break.

Italian football has again been rocked by match-fixing allegations, this time tied in with betting syndicates in which Beppe Signori was implicated.

Ancelotti said: "I have been in football for 30 years and these are ugly stories. I hope not, but I fear it might be true. I was stunned by Signori. He is a good lad and I'm very sad to see him in this situation.

"There was a betting scandal 30 years ago, then Calciopoli and now this. Our football was already having some problems and really did not need another blow. The culture is different in England, where the result is not everything."
