Blues rubbish Carlo quit reports

The Italian has come under pressure in recent weeks following a dip

in in their form, coupled with the shock departure of his

right-hand man Ray Wilkins. The Blues have lost three of their last

four games, but still remain top of the league on goal difference

following their latest defeat at Birmingham on Saturday. Wilkins’

departure has rocked the club, with Ancelotti confirming that the

decision to axe him was not his. On Sunday, bookmakers reported a

huge surge in betting on Ancelotti departing and rumours began to

spread that he was ready to walk away. But the champions have

reacted by insisting that is not the case, and told Sky Sports

News: “He is contracted until 2012 and speculation about his future

is total nonsense.”
