Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has put an end to speculation linking him with the vacancy at Paris Saint-Germain.
The ex-Chelsea coach has also said he is looking forward to facing his former boss Jose Mourinho next season.
In an interview with Abola.pt, the Portuguese tactician told reporters that he won't leave Spurs to guide PSG in their quest for European success, despite being close friends with the club president at the Parc des Princes.
Villas-Boas had been widely tipped to take over from Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti, whose prolonged negotiations to leave the Ligue 1 winners - and fill the Real Madrid vacancy left by Mourinho - are set to conclude with his departure in the coming days.
The 35-year-old commented: "I have a longstanding friendship with the president of PSG. He is a friend, we speak regularly but my commitment is with Tottenham.
"It was the club that allowed me to return to the Premier League and I feel good there."
His confirmation means that Villas-Boas will return to Stamford Bridge for the second time since being sacked by the Blues after just eight months in charge. Yet, AVB is full of praise for Chelsea's returning 'Special One' and fellow Portuguese coach.
"It will be special to play against Chelsea, particularly to face a person who was instrumental in my career."
Villas-Boas worked under the former Real manager as a scout during his first spell in west London but Mourinho's second coming is likely to be less short-lived.
