Shevchenko: Ancelotti will be great for Chelsea

Dynamo Kiev star Andriy Shevchenko has no doubts that Carlo Ancelotti will be a long-term success at Chelsea.

Former Blues striker Sheva enjoyed a great relationship with Ancelotti at AC Milan.

"He'll do fantastically," Shevchenko told the Sunday Times. "He's a brilliant coach and a good man."

Those last words pinpoint Ancelotti's feelgood factor. Michael Ballack said: "You can't really describe it. You like people or you don't and I - I think everyone - likes Ancelotti."

Petr Cech said: "He brings calmness to all the players and creates a good atmosphere."

John Terry added: "Carlo is a modern-day manager who understands what modern-day players feel."
