Carlo Ancelotti confirmed his decision to leave AC Milan was made by "mutual consent" as he left the Rossoneri after almost eight years in charge.

He is widely expected to be confirmed as the new coach of Chelsea for next season, but he would not be drawn on where his future lies.

"Ir is not the day for that," he said. "I have had eight great years here and I want to thank everybody who has been with me over these years. That is all I can say."

Milan beat Fiorentina 2-0 today to clinch second place in Serie A, and automatic qualification for the Champions League group stage.

Ancelotti, 49, stated his departure was agreed after the final whistle.

He said: "It was decided by mutual consent after the game after we reached our minimum aim for this season.

"Our roads will separate next season."

Although Ancelotti could not confirm he will become the next coach of the Blues, he did at least reveal that he would not be joining another Serie A club.

"I am certainly not staying in Italy," he added. "But it is not certain that I am going to London for sure."
