I don't want to leave Monaco, insists Ranieri

Ligue 1's runners-up finished their campaign with a 1-1 draw with Bordeaux and the Italian has stressed he is planning to be in charge for the 2014-15 season
Claudio Ranieri insists he has no plans to leave Monaco after guiding the club to second place in Ligue 1 this season.

The Principality club completed their campaign with a 1-1 draw with Girondins de Bordeaux on Saturday, as Lucas Ocampos sealed a point with a second-half equaliser following Guillaume Hoarau's 15th-minute opener.

Ranieri's future at the club has been the subject of speculation despite the Italian guiding Monaco to a Champions League return in their first season back in the French top flight, but the former Chelsea boss is adamant he wants to stay at Stade Louis II.

"It was phenomenal. I want to thank all the fans who have helped us throughout the last two championships," Ranieri told repoters after the match.

"I feel very proud of my players and I am a very positive person. I love my job for the emotion it brings and tonight was a good night for emotion and adrenaline.

"I don't know when I'll see my bosses. Maybe this week or next week. I don't want to leave because I am very happy here.

"For now, I'm staying in the Principality. This was my final match... for this season."

Monaco ultimately finished nine points behind champions Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1, with 80 points and 23 wins from their 38 matches.
