Chelsea legend John Terry played under a lot of managers during his time at Chelsea, and the former Blues skipper worked under some world-class managers.

Despite the calibre of managers that he has played under, it was Carlo Ancelotti who struck the Chelsea captain the most.

According to Terry, Ancelotti had good man-management skills and made the players feel involved by discussing tactics with some of the senior players.

“What I really loved about Carlo [Ancelotti] is his man-management, the way he adapted as well – because he had a way of coaching that probably didn’t suit English football,” the legendary Chelsea skipper told The Coaches’ Voice.

“But he adapted very quickly, when speaking to me, Frank [Lampard], Didier [Drogba], he wanted to pick our brains: ‘Is this too much of tactics for the players to do? Are we doing too much of this? I want to get the right balance’.

“I’ve never had a manager actually, in probably all my career, that asked the players and gave them a bit of responsibility.

“He made you feel the togetherness was incredible, and we went on to win some big things.”
