Frank Lampard Hails Chelsea Double-Winner Carlo Ancelotti

England midfielder ranks history-making Italian alongside Jose Mourinho ...

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has praised manager Carlo Ancelotti as a club legend after just one season in charge of the club.

The Italian won only one Serie A title in his years at AC Milan, and was widely seen as the man chosen by owner Roman Abramovich to bring the Londoners a first Champions League trophy - perhaps at the expense of a league challenge.

However, the 60-year-old made a mockery of such predictions as he masterminded a season of unprecedented domestic success, not only ending Manchester United's three-year hold on the Premier League, but claiming a first league and FA Cup double for Chelsea.

The story is too old to be commented.
