Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou has refused to comment on speculation surrounding the future of Carlo Ancelotti, but has urged his teammates to remain united regardless of what transpires in the summer.

It has been widely reported that Ancelotti will be sacked by Roman Abramovich after a trophyless campaign, despite the calls of John Terry - and others - for the Italian to remain at Stamford Bridge.

Former Chelsea No.2 Ray Wilkins believes Ancelotti's Double success the previous season should warrant at least another year in the hotseat, but Abramovich's desperation to win the Champions League is likely to end the 51-year-old's tenure.

Kalou, meanwhile, admits the players must take some of the blame for the lack of success this season.

"I don't know. It doesn't matter. For me, the most important thing is to stay as a team," the 25-year-old told Sky Sports News when questioned about Ancelotti.

"Last year we won the Double and it was all the team. This year if we don't win any competition it'll be the same.


"I'm not looking for an excuse. It doesn't matter which players or who is the manager, the players have to be together and give a better performance.

"We don't make the decision. We're here to play for the club. We're happy to work with anyone. That's for the board to decision.

"The players are going to give their all on the pitch and that's the most important thing."
