[Carlo] Ancelotti is gasping for Champions League success, so he can beat the Wembley smoking ban again.Back of the net!
He admitted: "There are at least three factors which could act as the springboard for Chelsea to win the Champions League this season.
"Firstly, the final will be in London and all my lads want to play a starring role in it.
"Then Chelsea has been chasing after the Champions League for so long that they now have a real desire to bring the trophy home.
"But the third motivation is purely personal. I want to indulge in another bit of rule-breaking and once again smoke a cigarette in the forbidden temple of Wembley.
"I did it last year when we won the FA Cup against Portsmouth and nobody pulled me up about it.
"Yet when Guus Hiddink lit a cigar to celebrate winning the FA Cup in 2009, he was caught on camera and fined £2,500.
"But I am an Italian. So I would not lose any sleep about that!"
I can see a council EHO being detailed to stalk his every move on the day though, can't you?
