Carlo Ancelotti has compared himself to Julius Caesar as the Italian bids to conquer English football with Roman Abramovich's Chelsea.

The Blues boss sits proudly on top of the Premier League table just eight months after arriving in the country following his spell as AC Milan coach and sees parallels between himself and the famous Roman emperor as he targets victory in all competitions.

He explained: 'Caesar's phrase comes to mind when I think of what hashappened this season. I have come to England, seen what it is like and,before I leave, I want to conquer the FA Cup, the Premier League andthe Champions League.

'I have not lost my sense of humour since coming here. In England itrains every day but still people sometimes tell me it is a beautifulday.

'That's when I tell them about Julius Caesar, who spent so much timein Britain yet, in the end, opted to move back to the Amalfi coast inItaly.

'But I am not in any hurry to leave. The competition here is very strong and it is not going to be easy.'

Ancelotti continued his Italian analogies by comparing the cream of the Premier League to the top sides in Serie A, emphasising that he wanted Chelsea to match the phenomenal success of his former club Milan, where he won two Champions League trophies as boss.

'I would compare Manchester United with Inter Milan, Arsenal with Roma and Manchester City with Fiorentina.

'But I want to pair Chelsea with my old club, AC Milan. If we canmatch some of Milan's past achievements, that would not be at all bad.'
