Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti revealed he will be supporting the Blues in their Europa League final clash with Arsenal.

Ancelotti won the Premier League and FA Cup during his first season in charge as Chelsea boss, as he won the fans over with his free-flowing attacking style of play. 

And the current Napoli manager revealed he still feels “close” to the club and will be backing the Blues when they face Arsenal in the Europa League final later this month, according to Twitter account ‘Everything Napoli.’

Ancelotti’s Napoli side were knocked out of the Europa League by Arsenal, who comfortably saw off Valencia to progress to the final to face Chelsea. 

And former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri will be looking to end a rather turbulent first season in charge at Stamford Bridge with a trophy, after securing a top four finish in the Premier League.
