Giuseppe passed away in Italy on Wednesday night aged 87 with his son at his side. The funeral will take place on Saturday.

"Everyone at Chelsea sends our deepest condolences to Carlo and his family. They are all in our thoughts at this time," read a statement on the club's official website, www.chelseafc.com.

Assistant manager Ray Wilkins will take Friday's press conference in Ancelotti's absence.
