Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the rumours he started about going to manage Roma at the end of the season, and insisted he was staying with Chelsea.
Ancelotti said earlier in the week that it would be his dream to manage the club where he spent 8 years as a player, and many took that as a sign he wanted the job in the summer.
With Chelsea struggling, he could find himself out of a job in the summer, and Roma have put an extremely inexperienced manager on Montella as caretaker boss.
Ancelotti however told an Italian newspaper he had other ideas.
“I count on staying where I am, I am still Italian, but I appreciate the English, even if at times their press exaggerates things, like in the case of Rino Gattuso.
“I am thinking about the Champions League and fourth place at the minimum in the Premier League. I have drummed it into the team: think about the final at Wembley. I am working a lot.”
Ancelotti revealed he did intend to return to Italy at some point, and wished Montella the best in his new role.
“I will return to coach in Italy. But when, I really don’t know,” added Ancelotti.
“Meanwhile, I send my best wishes to Montella. I think I still have some bonuses to earn in England.”
