Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti has excluded a quick return to Serie A, insisting he will remain in London for at least two years.
Ancelotti has come under scrutiny following Chelsea's poor run of form, prompting reports in Italy to suggest that Roma were tracking the coach who is a fans' favourite following his time there as a midfielder.
Speaking to Il Corriere dello Sport, Ancelotti said: "Will I stay until 2012? At the moment until 2012. Have I spoke 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."
