Ancelotti – I want to finish my contract at Chelsea

Now that Chelsea’s title chances have almost certainly come to an end, thoughts shift to Carlo Ancelotti’s future. The Chelsea manager seemed to have a chance to put himself back in good favour with Roman Abramovich. But after the defeat to Manchester United, Chelsea will almost certainly end the season without a trophy.

The Guardian reports that Ancelotti might leave London to manage Roma, a long held ambition of his. Speaking about his future he told the paper: “I love my country. But in the last two years I found a fantastic atmosphere here, with no violence in the stadiums, and I would like to stay here for this reason”

He continued: “I have another year on my contract and I would like to stay but that is a decision of the club. We will arrange a meeting after the end of the season. I am honest and I have to say that we didn’t do the best. Last year was a fantastic season and this one has been a little bit different. But I think they have to consider all the season. I want to thank the players because for the last two months they were the best team in the Premier League”.

The way seems clear for Abramovich and the Chelsea board to approach Guus Hiddink, Marco Van Basten or Porto’s Andre Villas Boas.
