Ancelotti wants actions not words

Published Add your comment

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti insists he is not interested in being dragged into a psychological battle with other managers in the Barclays Premier League.

The Italian is aware of last season's war of words between Rafael Benitez and Sir Alex Ferguson, conducted while Liverpool and Manchester United were battling it out for the title.

"I have respect for all of the Premier League managers, but I don't care about these mind games," he said. "It happens all over the world, exactly the same thing."

The Italian added: "Little things worry little minds. What I worry about is getting the team ready, preparing the team to beat my opponents, to win against Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal."

Ancelotti has, however, warned his rivals his team mean business this season on the domestic front and in Europe.

"(We want to win) the Premier League or the Champions League, or maybe even both," he added.

"It won't be easy but we will try to do it."
