Carlo Ancelotti has no intention of quitting Chelsea at the end of the season.
The future of under-pressure Blues boss Ancelotti has been the subject of fevered speculation, with reports linking him with a return to Italy with Roma.
But the 51-year-old declared today he would honour his contract, which expires in 2012, and hinted he may stay even longer.
"I'll stay in London at least until 2012," he told Corriere dello Sport.
Ancelotti also rubbished suggestions of a dressing-room rift at Stamford Bridge in the wake of the club's worst run in the Barclays Premier League for more than a decade.
"There aren't problems in the dressing room, the relationships are good," he said. "Everything depends on the results that haven't arrived because of too many misfortunes."
