CARLO ANCELOTTI looks certain to lift at least one trophy at the end of the season - for competitive eating.

The Chelsea coach's new autobiography is stuffed with culinary anecdotes and the memorable quote: "I scarf down food like a horse and no-one is happier than me."

Stories include Carlo getting the nod at AC Milan because previous boss Fatih Terim had banned Culatello salami from the training ground, and his favourite nosh at Real Madrid, tortellini y meringues ("one look at it and you gain weight. Eat it and you'll go down in history").

Not surprisingly, Carlo's favourite meal is more of a light snack. "We begin with Prosciutto and Parmesan cheese. After, tortellini. And then the main course, Bollito. Lots of different meats, boiled, with sauces. For dessert, tiramisu. And to drink, Toscana wine." That's around 3,000 calories per sitting.
