Carlo hails English spectacle

11 Sep 2009 - 09:13:21

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti believes his native Italy can learn a great deal from the Premier League he has encountered.

The former AC Milan boss took over at Stamford Bridge during the summer and has been impressed with what he has found in England.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's trip to Stoke City, he said: "People go to the stadium to see a spectacle. In Italy unfortunately it isn't like that.

"People there don't have this sense for spectacle.

"In Italy we still have violence, so I hope that in Italy it will change soon and that people go to the stadium to see an exciting match, like in England, and to support their team - not using violence and racist taunts towards the players.

"It is something nice and interesting to see here (in England). I like it because all the stadiums are full and work very well. It's a very positive experience."
