Chelsea without Ancelotti as they prepare for Arsenal clash

(GSM) – Chelsea will have to do without manager Carlo Ancelotti as they prepare for Sunday’s big clash against London rivals Arsenal.

Ancelotti has traveled back to Italy earlier in the week to be with his father, who passed away at the age of 87 on Wednesday night.

The Blues’ boss will be with his family in Italy for the funeral on Saturday but will be back to take his place in the dugout at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea issued a statement on the club’s official website that read: “Carlo Ancelotti’s father Giuseppe passed away in Italy last night aged 87 with his son at his side.

“Everyone at Chelsea Football Club sends our deepest condolences to Carlo and his family. They are all in our thoughts at this time.

“The funeral will take place in Italy on Saturday. Carlo will return to London for Sunday’s match versus Arsenal.”
