Carlo Ancelotti unsure of Chelsea future, but Hiddink denies reports of a return

Chelsea coach Carlo Ancleotti has stated that he is unsure what the future holds for him at Stamford Bridge, and whether he will still be at the club next season.

The Blues have had a below par campaign this season in their attempt to retain the Premier League title, and were knocked out of Europe by rivals Manchester United in midweek.

Speaking ahead of the London club’s match against West Brom this weekend the Italian said: “I don’t know what my future is. At the end of the season, the club can decide if they want me to continue or if they want to change.

“If they’re not happy, they can change. This is not a problem for me. To speak now about which kind of change the club wants to do for next season about a new transfer or my future is not the right time,” the ex-Milan coach continued.

“Every one of us has to try to do the best for the left seven games. After that, in the summer, we can speak about this. But to speak now is not the right time.”

Ancelotti has been linked with a move back to his homeland, with the a return to his old playing club Roma on the cards.

Meanwhile ex-coach Guus Hiddink’s agent Cees van Nieuwenhuizen has said there is no chance of the Dutch manager returning to Stamford Bridge to replace Ancelotti.

Speaking with Reuters van Nieuwenhuizen said: “No chance. Guus has always honored his contracts, and when he signed [with Turkey] he guaranteed them he would not leave until the deal had expired.”
