Early today an article stating ex-Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly caught my attention as he claimed that the reason Carlo Ancelotti was sacked was purely because he couldn't get the best out of Fernando Torres and nothing else.

Now straight away I thought to myself "Are you for real!?" I know some of you maybe will agree with him but I simply cannot see it.

What Desailly actually said was:
“Yes [I was surprised at the club’s decision], because he was doing well in the league and this year he faced a very difficult Manchester United, who had huge statistics at home. Probably the only reason why he was let go was because Roman Abramovich felt that he didn’t fit in Torres. He didn’t know how to put him in the set-up offensively.

I think he is defiantly onto something when he says that Ancelotti didn't know how to play him in the side, but to say it's THE reason is ridiculous.

I have gone on record here before stating the reason I believe he was fired at Chelsea and that was because of our Champions League campaigns in each of the last two seasons, in addition to not having a "Plan B" when we struggled to break sides down in games.

Think about how far we had gotten in each of the previous season's in the Champions League before Carlo came here. In his first season we got knocked out by Inter in the last 16 and last season in quarter finals. Compared to previous seasons of getting to the semi finals and a final you have to say that Carlo took us further away from winning the competition, which you have to say seemed to be his focus when he first took over.

If you are a good manager you have to be a good man manager and if you are good at that, you can get the best out of everyone. I don't believe that Fernando Torres signing for Chelsea was the reason he was sacked, it was his inability to change things in games and his European record at Chelsea.
