Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that Joe Cole was not intelligent enough to follow instructions.

The Blues allowed Cole to leave for Liverpool on a free transfer and then bought Yossi Benayoun for six million pounds. with many questioning the wisdom of the deal.

But Ancelotti told The Sun: "Joe Cole is quicker than Benayoun but Yossi is better tactically. He understands what I tell him.

"Yossi is a very intelligent player. He knows everything about the game.

"Cole and Benayoun are different players and everyone has their own opinion, but we are happy to have Yossi here at Chelsea."

This follows pre-World Cup reports that Fabio Capello did not trust Cole not to lose the ball in key positions.
