ShareCarlo Ancelotti rounded off his preparations for what may well be his last game in charge of Chelsea by hosting the traditional end-ofseason barbecue for staff on the terrace outside his office - and, with all the personal warmth that has won him so many friends at Stamford Bridge, he did not sound like a man dreading execution.

The Italian, who has a year left on his contract, looks destined next week to become Roman Abramovich's fifth managerial sacking in eight years but said: 'I'm not desperate to keep this job.

Time to say goodbye? Carlo Ancelotti could be facing his last game as Chelsea manager on Sunday

'This is my character. I don't know if it's a weakness or not. I don't want to fight to keep my job. The club have to judge two years of my job. If they decide to change, it's not a problem. You won't see (me) crying.

'My desire is to stay here because I feel happy here. I'm very quiet and calm. I just want to wait and see what the club have decided.'

Ancelotti's opposite number at Goodison tomorrow, Everton boss David Moyes, dismissed talk that Aston Villa have lined him up to replace Gerard Houllier.

'Villa have a really good manager, who is ill,' said Moyes. 'The last thing he needs is someone talking about his job. I'm not interested.'
