The Ivorian admitted he initially struggled to come to terms with the new rotation policy following the record-breaking arrival of the Spanish World Cup winner from Liverpool in January.

However, the 33-year-old insists he has now come around to the idea of being in and out of the team.

And Ancelotti has applauded Drogba's acceptance of his policy.

Happy

He said: "I was very happy with what Didier said in his interviews.

"If the players understand that rotation is important for the team, that's important.

"It makes my job easier to manage the team if they understand that, and that means there's no problem."

Defence

The Italian also revealed he is ready to apply his rotation policy at the back with the January arrival of David Luiz and the imminent return of Alex from injury sure to create more competition for places.

"The most important thing is that we have four defenders, four centre-backs, and no other team in the world has their quality or experience," said Ancelotti.

"They're not guaranteed places, no. Sometimes they'll need to rest.

"We have to play eight or nine games in April, so it's impossible to think I can use just 11 players.

"I'll need 20 players to move through this moment."
