Blues boss rules out swift return to homeland...

Carlo Ancelotti has put his nostalgia for Italian football to one side to focus on Chelsea as he excludes a role with Italy.

The Blues boss has expressed a desire to coach a national team in future, but for now he is firmly drilled on furnishing his time around Chelsea.

And he made it clear he is in with the Blues for the long haul as he hopes to continue on a trophy-filled journey with plenty of sticking power.

"I want to open up a cycle with Chelsea, and then we will see," he told TG1.

"I hope Cesare Prandelli stays with Italy for 20 years. According to statistics Italy win the World Cup once every 24 years which means we will win again in 2030.

"But I hope they can win it before then."
