Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is adamant that he doesn't need to sign a new contract to show his commitment to the club, confirming that he's in it for the long haul in a difficult press conference for the Blues boss.
Mourinho has just over two years left on his current deal with Chelsea, which means that even if unfounded speculation over his future will linger into next season if fresh terms aren't penned.
Try telling that to Mourinho though, who has no interest in coaching anywhere other than Stamford Bridge at this stage of his career.
Burnley game almost forgotten about
Ahead of tomorrow's clash with Burnley the Blues was asked about his future, telling The Mirror: "I have two more years of contract. I want to stay.
"I think the club is happy too. Im not waiting for offers, I’m not going to give any space for speculation or interest of other clubs. I want to stay I don’t want to go.
"I will stay until Mr Abramovich wants me to stay." In essence, he's going absolutely nowhere unless something drastic changes.
Apologies will dominate headlines
Outside of wholeheartedly condemning the actions of Chelsea fans who racially abused a man on the Paris metro on Tuesday evening Mourinho confirmed that he has concerns over the harsh treatment Eden Hazard received during the PSG match.
Hazard was fouled nine times in the 1-1 draw and has was clearly marked out for special attention by PSG coach Laurent Blanc, something the Belgian maestro has been forced to get used given his superb form over the last 18 months.
Mourinho feels Hazard was lucky to avoid serious injury at the Parc des Princes, a trait he must be praying stays with a very important player.
"I hope he stays lucky," Mourinho said. "He is honest, loyal, he doesn't provoke opponents and try to create emotional reactions but in this moment he is a difficult person to stop.
"And at the moment it is going over the line but I am proud of him for being this kind of honest kid on the pitch and I leave it with the authorities to do something if they feel they need to do."
Mourinho will be glad to get back to the football tomorrow, with the opportunity to extend Chelsea's lead at the top of the table to 10 points for a few hours before Manchester City face Newcastle one that's surely too good to pass up.
