Ancelotti not looking to spend big

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti does not think the club need to spend big this summer to get back to the top of the Barclays Premier League.

The Blues were still in the title race with three games to go, and victory at Old Trafford almost a fortnight ago would have put them in pole position to regain their crown.

Roman Abramovich helped the Stamford Bridge outfit bring Fernando Torres and David Luiz to the club for close to £75 million in January, and a repeat isn't on the cards if Ancelotti remains at the helm.

"I think this team, to maintain their position at the top, doesn't need to spend a lot of money,'' the Chelsea boss said to the media in Friday's press conference.

"We spent a lot in January on (Fernando) Torres and (David) Luiz, and Ramires last summer. We won't need a lot of changes to stay at the top.''

Ahead of Sunday's clash against Everton, Ancelotti hinted that his own position as manager could potentially be in danger, although it didn't seem to concern the former Milan chief too much.


Instead, the Italian focused on producing a performance against the Toffees despite having little to play for with second place already assured.

"The club have to judge my job - be objective. If they decide to change, it's not a problem. You won't see me crying or doing something. I will accept the decision of the club and find another 'solution'," the Italian continued.

"On Sunday, we want to play at our best. It will not be easy because the last week of training when obviously there are not a lot of aims to reach, it's not easy to maintain concentration and stay focused. But we want to try our best and finish the season well."
