The Chelsea manager admits that he is under pressure.

The media have been speculating that Carlo Ancelotti was ready to quit the Blues following a departure of his assistant, Ray Wilkins, but the Italian insists that he has no intention of leaving the club.

Some newspapers even reported that he has contacted the League Managers’ Association to find out what options are open to him.

But Ancelotti said: “I don’t know if it’s enough to clarify my position to close these rumours and speculation. These rumours are totally untrue. I don’t know why they came out. I didn’t speak with the LMA.

“These rumours are totally untrue. I have my contract until 2012, here, in this club. I’ve said a lot of times that I’d like to stay here.

“I love not just this club, but these players. I have a lot of confidence in these players, in this squad, so there’s no reason to change my ideas.

“I don’t know if this is enough to speak about all this. I think that when the team don’t reach the right results, obviously the coach is under pressure.”

However he admitted that he does feel under pressure, but not from the club’s owner.

The Chelsea boss said: “Obviously I am under pressure because I’d like Chelsea to win every game, but just this. I am focused on my job to make us play better than we are at this moment. Just this.”

It has been reported that Ancelotti and several of the players were very unhappy with Wilkins’ departure and some experts even blamed the events behind the scenes for the drop in form of the team.
