Ancelotti `lucky' to avoid sack

04 January 2011 11:30
Carlo Ancelotti admits he is lucky to have kept his job as Chelsea manager after presiding over the worst run of form under the reign of owner Roman Abramovich. The Blues have taken just 10 points from their last 10 Barclays Premier League matches and just two from their last five away games - a poor run which has seen them slide to fifth place. They face Wolves at Molineux on Wednesday night when a win is vital if they are not to lose touch with the Premier League pace-setters. When the former AC Milan boss was asked if he would have been sacked by now if he was still in Italy, he replied: "I am a lucky man. I understand that a lot of coaches are sacked with results like these."
