Carlo Ancelotti Claims He Will Stay At Chelsea Until 2012

Serie A return with Roma unlikely for Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti...
Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti has excluded a quick return to Serie A, insisting he will remain in London for at least two years and help guide his team back to the pinnacle.

Ancelotti has come under scrutiny following Chelsea's poor run of form. Reports in Italy suggested Roma were tracking the coach, who is a club and fan favourite following his time there as a midfielder.

However, no room to move is in view for the coach as he has pledged his allegiance at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Il Corriere dello Sport, Ancelotti said: "Will I stay until 2012? At the moment until 2012. Have I spoken with Roman Abramovich over a new deal? Not yet. Now is the time to reshape Chelsea in the Premier League and I can assure the team is better compared to what it was some time ago."

The former Milan coach believes a long line of injuries have led the Blues machine to veer off course. But Ancelotti feels they have not been totally thrown off the Premier League yoke.

"What is our problem? Injuries. We lost players like Alex, John Terry, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba. Replacing them was not easy," he said.

"Trouble in the dressing room? I would say there isn't any and the relationships are good."
