Ancelotti looking to 'build a dream'

Carlo Ancelotti has vowed to keep the feelgood factor going at Stamford Bridge after being confirmed as Chelsea's new manager. Just two days after the popular Guus Hiddink signed off from his temporary stint in charge of the Blues with an FA Cup final victory over Everton, the Italian was, as expected, unveiled as the new man at the helm. "I want to bring my experience, my individual quality and I think to win it is important to work together. That is the most important thing, to win," he said. "I know English football very well and Chelsea is a great team, great players, strong team. "I like to be close with the players. I like to be close with the company. I like to speak with people and I believe in teamwork. "It is the most important thing, to create a group that works together to build a dream." Ancelotti is determined to end Chelsea's wait for Champions League glory after signing a three-year deal at Stamford Bridge. The 49-year-old officially takes charge on July 1 as Chelsea's fifth manager in less than two years following Mourinho, Avram Grant, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Hiddink. Chelsea have won every trophy available to them since Roman Abramovich injected his millions into the club - except for the Champions League. Ancelotti's managerial success in Europe - guiding AC Milan to two Champions League titles and three finals during an eight-year rein at the San Siro - made him the "outstanding candidate" in Chelsea's eyes.
