Carlo Ancelotti 'does not need Old Trafford win'
12th April 2011 - Chad Lazarus
Carlo Ancelotti insists his future as Chelsea football manager does not hinge on tonight's (April 12th) Champions League quarter-final second leg at Old Trafford.
The Blues head into the match trailing 1-0 from the first match, with many suspecting that a lacklustre season combined with another Champions League failure will prompt owner Roman Abramovich to sack Ancelotti.
But Ancelotti says that he has no need to seek assurances over his future, as he has a contract until 2012 and expects to fulfil it.
The football manager also claimed that the pressure on Chelsea for the Old Trafford meeting can be a good for the players.
"I have said many times pressure is not a bad thing. It means staying focused, concentrated, giving players a chance to do their best," he explained.
Chelsea will again have Yossi Benayoun available for the trip to Manchester, along with central defender Alex, although Brazilian David Luiz is cup-tied.
