No logic in sacking Ancelotti, says Hoddle

FORMER Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle has thrown his support behind under-fire Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti and questioned why anybody would want to dismantle the solid foundations at Stamford Bridge.

Ancelotti is under intense pressure following Wednesday’s Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester United and failure to retain the Premier League title.

Hoddle said: “I think in football you need to get a balance. If you don’t look at a balance you can make a mistake. Why would you want to start afresh again? I would say he definitely deserves another season, if not two.”
