Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti insists he will not quit despite mounting pressure on the Italian.
The Blues completed a Premier League and FA Cup double in Ancelotti’s maiden campaign at Stamford Bridge, but an alarming slump over the past couple of months has left them facing a trophy-less season this time around.
His side are 12 points behind current league leaders Manchester United, and they crashed out of the FA Cup at the weekend, beaten on penalties by Everton.
But when asked if he would consider walking away from the club, Ancelotti said: “No, not me.
“I have never quit, resigned or walked out and I'm not in the mood to quit now.
“I don't have to consider my position. It is the owner that has to consider my position, not myself.
“I just have to work and try to do my best. This is football, you have to be able to manage at this moment with confidence.
