Ancelotti denies Roma link

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has brushed aside reports linking him with a move to Roma this summer.

Ancelotti was in the Italian capital this week and his presence increased speculation that he could join the Serie A outfit next season.

Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I have not spoken to any club. I don't want to talk about the future until this season is over. I want to remain in England and I can assure you that I will not be coaching in Italy next year."

Ancelotti won the Italian title with Roma as a player in 1983 and has made no secret that he would love to manage them one day.


However, it will not be in the near future.

"I don't know if I will make it in time to one day coach (Roma captain Francesco) Totti," Ancelotti said.

The 51-year-old joined Chelsea from AC Milan in June 2009 and went on to win the league and FA Cup double in his first season.

The Italian tactician is under contract with the Blues outfit until June 2012.

Despite a mid-season slump, the London club are now back in the Barclays Premier League title race and face leaders Manchester United in a must-win clash at Old Trafford on Sunday.
