Ancelotti: No word from Roman

Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti says he has not spoken to the club's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich following FIFA's controversial decision to award the 2018 World Cup to Russia. Abramovich was in Zurich to hear the result of the ballot which saw England go out at the first hurdle with just two votes. "I didn't speak to him," said Ancelotti. "Russia took the World Cup. Russia is growing in football. The Russian league is improving quickly. They didn't have the possibility to have the World Cup before, so it's a good solution. "Obviously, the English are disappointed but this is normal. But I said that, in 2012, there will be the Olympics in London. I'm Italian and we don't have the Olympics, the World Cup or anything. We don't have anything. It's normal to be disappointed but we have to look forward. "Maybe, in 2026 or 2030, it could be in England again. I hope that it will be in 2030 because, that year, Italy will win the World Cup. "Italy win the World Cup every 24 years: 1982, 2006 and 2030. I hope to be the coach for the Italian team that does it."
