Carlo Ancelotti doesn't have a job

Roman Abramovich has continued his policy of being an absolute bastard by sacking Carlo Ancelotti for not winning a trophy this year:

Chelsea offered this statement straight after the 1-0 loss against Everton on Sunday:
"This season's performances have fallen short of expectations and the club feels the time is right to make this change ahead of next season's preparations."
Abramovich probably didn't help matters for the manager by getting rid of his assistant for no apparent reason halfway through the campaign and also spending £50 million on what appears to be a broken Fernando Torres, making him play football every week despite the fact that if he were a horse he would have been put down by now.

The rumours have already started as to just who will be the next Chelsea boss and of course Mourinho has been mentioned along with Guus Hiddink and Villas-Boas of Porto but I'm not sure there are any superhuman football managers around at the moment, or at least none who can win everything every single year.  As we've previously discussed, Abramovich wants the Champions League because he's convinced it is the Holy Grail and will immortalise him so expect Harrison Ford to take up his first managerial position next season.
