Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has come out fighting, insisting he will not quit as Chelsea boss.
Chelsea have struggled for form of late, having dropped from 1st to 5th in the league, and have been knocked out of both domestic cups.
They resume their last realistic hope of silverware in the form of the Champions League this week, desperate to salvage something from their season.
After losing on penalties to Everton in the FA Cup this weekend, and drawing with Fulham away from home on Monday, Chelsea hardly enter their tie with Copenhagen with any confidence, but with £50million man Fernando Torres available will hope they have enough firepower to win through.
The former AC Milan coach was asked following Saturday’s defeat if he would ever quit, and replied, “No, not me.
“I have never quit, resigned or walked out and I’m not in the mood to quit now.
“I don’t have to consider my position. It is the owner that has to consider my position, not myself.
“I just have to work and try to do my best. This is football, you have to be able to manage at this moment with confidence.”
Ancelotti is hoping for a more positive performance against Copenhagen in the Champions League, adding, “The Champions League is not easy, but it will bring a lot of motivation for every one of us.”
“We have to have the right pressure. We have to play against Copenhagen. We have 180 minutes to win this game.”
He added: “Chelsea won’t go out against Copenhagen. I think we have the possibility to win against Copenhagen.”
