So tonight Chelsea have confirmed that Carlo Ancelotti has left the club and for many of us it comes as no surprise really. Being honest how many of you reading this expected the same announcement to be made back in December or January?.

For me even though I have converted into being a Carlo Ancelotti fan and stating that I felt as though he deserved another season based on last season, the fact he has picked us up and led us to second place in the league, I like all of you are faced with a reality and have to forget personal feelings and try to understand why it has happened.

It's important to remember here the reason that Carlo Ancelotti was brought to Chelsea. He was brought to the club to win the Champions League and the simple fact remains that if anything, we find ourselves further and further away from doing so.

When Carlo Ancelotti took over the club, Chelsea had reached at least the Quarter Finals of the competition in all of the last few years. It seemed as though our side was ready to take that extra step forward and Ancelotti was the man Roman Abramovich believed could do it.

Last season, in his first attempt, and let's be honest here, Carlo Ancelotti was totally out-witted by Jose Mourinho first of all in the San Siro and then again at Stamford Bridge as we crashed out to the eventual winners Inter Milan but only at the round of 16 stage of the competition after winning our group undefeated easily.

This season again, Chelsea have stumbled in the Champions League and this time Carlo Ancelotti took Chelsea to the next stage of the competition by reaching the quarter finals. Two defeats at home and then away to Man United put pay to any of our hopes in Europe once again this season.

So the simple fact is that Carlo was brought here to do a job and that was to win the Champions League but has failed to do so and if anything has taken us backwards in the competition.

Now some people will argue here that we lost last year to the eventual winners Inter Milan and this year to Manchester United but that doesn't matter. If you want to win this competition, you have to beat the best sides in Europe. Sir Alex Ferguson outwitted Carlo Ancelotti twice just like Mourinho did last year.

Even the most sternest of Ancelotti supporters have to hold their hands up and admit that it's true and I am right in what I am saying here. We have to forget about anything else and focus on what he was brought here to do.

As I say, trying to understand why he has left and putting other feelings to one side we all have to ask ourselves the question:
Has our European failure over the last two seasons sealed Ancelotti's fate?

I personally believe it has played a huge part in Chelsea making the decision they have.
