Ancelotti signs a 3yr deal with Chelsea

After Ancelotti and AC Milan parted ways on mutual agreement , Chelsea have officially announced he would be taking over at Stamford Bridge.

Ancelotti has been linked with Chelsea for quite some time, this season as well as the last but after Gus Hiddink's short stint came to an end after winning the FA Cup, the London based club would be looking for the Italian to create wonders for them as he did for AC Milan.

He would be officially taking charge on July 1.

Chelsea's official website said :

Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce that Carlo Ancelotti has agreed to become our new manager.

He has signed a three year contract and will start on July 1, 2009.

Carlo was the outstanding candidate for the job. He has proved over a long period his ability to build teams that challenged for, and have been successful in, major domestic and European competitions.

Despite his long list of honours and awards, I personally have apprehensions about his ability to be hit in the Premiership.Luis Felipe Scolari also came to Chelsea with a great record but couldn't be a hit as everyone expected him to be.Would Ancelotti follow the same path? What do you think?
