Carlo Ancelotti dismisses title talk

8th March 2011 - Berko Tau

Chelsea football manager Carlo Ancelotti has played down suggestions that his side are back in the Premier League title race.

After beating Blackpool 3-1 at Bloomfield road last night (March 7th), the Blues sit nine points behind leaders Manchester United, although they have a game in hand and travel to Old Trafford in early May.

However, football manager Ancelotti is not thinking about getting back in the title race, insisting that his players focus on their own upcoming soccer games to secure a place in the Champions League next season.

He said: "Our aim at this moment is to stay in the top four. We are closer to Manchester United but we have to prepare for the next game and prepare game by game."

After going out of the FA Cup to Everton in the fourth round, Chelsea's players will now have eight days off until they play Copenhagen in the Champions League last 16 on March 16th.
