ROMAN ABRAMOVICH used to look to former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti for guidance when things weren't going so well.

The Russian owner appointed the Italian in 2009 and he went onto win the double before being axed two years later.


Ancelotti is still highly regarded among Blues staff and supporters.

And it is has been revealed that he remained in contact with Abramovich and the pair shared text messages over the team's struggles.

Sky Italia journalist Fabio Caressa admitted: "Ancelotti told me that Abramovich also texted him, always the same, especially in times when things were not going well.

"He only sent him a question mark.

"Instead he, the genius, that is, Carlo, answered him only with an exclamation mark."

WORD TO THE WISE

It appears that the 61-year-old was in no mood to give his former club any of his wisdom.

And managing a rival club in Everton this season, Abramovich probably won't be getting any messages from his former employer.

Earlier this season, Ancelotti oversaw the Toffees beat Chelsea 1-0 at Goodison Park

Maybe it was the Russian's turn to send him an exclamation mark this time?
