Football manager Carlo Ancelotti wants 'better luck'

6th April 2011 - Berko Tau

Chelsea football manager Carlo Ancelotti says Chelsea would have won the Champions League by now with more luck.

The Blues have reached the semi-finals of the competition in four of the last seven seasons and even made it to the final in 2008, when John Terry was the width of a post away from winning his team the trophy.

Current football manager Ancelotti has made it to three finals himself, winning two, so he knows that a little fortune is required to go all the way.

The Italian explained that his side are good enough to win the trophy, saying: "They have experience, they have ability … they've come so close to winning it.

"Unfortunately, some little details were not good. I hope this season we can have better luck but you also have to deserve the luck."

Chelsea will play Manchester United in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final tonight (April 6th) at Stamford Bridge.
