Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hinted that he could remain at Stamford Bridge after this season and rejected reports linking him with a possible move to Real Madrid.
Reports in Spain suggested the former FC Porto coach was a summer target for Real, while Mourinho had been widely expected to leave the Premiership champions of the last two seasons at the end of this campaign.
There had been reports of a bust-up between Mourinho and Blues owner Roman Abramovich, but the Portuguese coach has seemed happier in his role recently.
He said: "This season is much more enjoyable. It's encouraged me to stay."
Of the link with Real Madrid, who are currently coached by Fabio Capello, he added: "It's an insult to Real Madrid and Fabio.
"I don't play these games. If somebody else is interested in playing games, it's their problem.
"I respect Real Madrid and Fabio Capello. For sure I spoke with nobody and nobody spoke to me."
