Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that he wants to remain at the ‘paradise’ of Chelsea and has played down speculation of a return to Italy.
Ancelotti, 51, is adamant that he wants to stay with the Blues despite speculation stating that he would prefer a return to Roma.
"I hope to stay where I am," he said as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"Here is paradise. I stay really Italian but I appreciate the English, even if they aren’t very flexible. But I admire their love of the rules.
"For now I am thinking only about the Champions League final and I have made this clear to the squad. I am working all out to reach Wembley and the minimum of fourth place in the Premier League. One day I will return to coach Italy, but I don’t know when. The national side? Maybe after 2014."
The Italian believes English football has many benefits over the like in his home country, while ruling out managing Inter Milan.
"Italian football needs a cultural revolution with private money.
"A hospital is more important than stadiums with public money. In England, a fan can pass all day at the stadium but in Italy there are not comfortable and some are disgusting.”
"If Inter President Massimo Moratti did call me in the future then I would, politely, decline the offer.
"I’m a Milan man. I spent 13 years at Milan and for me it is impossible to forget the past."
