There is a curse hanging over Chelsea football club and that curse is all Roman Abramovich, as poor Carlo Ancelotti found out.

Our interest today, however, is Carlo Ancelotti.



Jose Mourinho was the first to feel Abramovich’s wrath in 2007, despite winning the FA Cup once and the Premier League and League Cup twice, though this was more a case of the Portuguese jumping before being pushed.



The Italian sacrificed a very positive working environment at AC Milan, where he was apparently adored, to make the unpredictable jump into Premier League management under Roman Abramovich in 2009 (as per The Guardian).

Whilst Roberto Di Matteo, who was never really up to scratch, Mourinho (again) and Antonio Conte have all suffered since – despite winning a Champions League and two domestic titles between them.

Ever since the Russian took over at Stamford Bridge there has rarely been a manager who has survived ‘long-term’ – irrespective of success.

Chelsea won the domestic title in his first season at the club, beating Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United by a single point.
