Carlo Ancelotti has remarkably revealed he "tried to kill" one of his players, during his time as Chelsea manager.
The 54-year-old was in charge at Stamford Bridge for two seasons before being sacked by Roman Abramovich in 2011.
His first campaign in West London had been an excellent one, leading the Blues to a Premier League and FA Cup double, developing a great relationship with the club's supporters along the way.
Ancelotti, now Real Madrid boss, has been known for his one-on-one interactions with players during his managerial career, which has taken him to AC Milan, Juventus and Paris St. Germain.
And he told the Times that he has always enjoyed a positive bond with his players apart from one unnamed individual, which caused him to take matters into his own hands.
The Italian said: "We've never had any problems with the players, just one time at Chelsea.
"One player didn't show respect and I tried to kill him but it wasn't possible.
"The player is the property of the club and sometimes you cannot do what you want."
While the individual in question remains anonymous, Ancelotti has claimed it is someone with a "well-documented history of misdemeanours."
Since his summer arrival at the Bernabeu, the 54-year-old has not failed to ruffle any more feathers, continually playing Diego Lopez ahead of Spain captain Iker Casillas.
Madrid lie third in the La Liga table, six points adrift of Barcelona as Ancelotti looks to win a title in a fourth different country.
