Ancelotti keen for Chelsea stay

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti conceded his Blues future may be in doubt, but hopes to be in charge at Stamford Bridge again next season.

Following yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford, Chelsea all but handed the title to Sir Alex Ferguson's side who now need a solitary point to confirm their place at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

Ancelotti though, still has twelve months to run on his existing contract, and is hopeful he will be given the chance to try and emulate his debut campaign where he guided the Blues to a domestic league and FA Cup double.

"I have another year on my contract and I would like to stay but it is the decision of the club," he said. "We have two more games, we wait and see."

Since moving to Stamford Bridge in 2009, Ancelotti has settled in England and wants to see out the rebuilding process currently underway at Chelsea in an attempt to lead the Blues to future success.


"Italy is my country and one day I will come back to Italy as I love my country but in the last two years I have found a fantastic atmosphere in football, a fantastic country, and I respect the people.

"I don't know what the owner [Roman Abramovich] thinks about the season but in my opinion we could have done better," Ancelotti stated.

"I am honest to say that Chelsea didn't do its best this season but sometimes that can happen.

"Last season we had a fantastic season, this year it was a little bit different.

"We bought [David] Luiz, Ramires and Fernando Torres who are all fantastic players and this was enough for the future.

"I don't think this team needs to have a lot of movement and now is not the right time."
