Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has shrugged off speculation linking Pep Guardiola with his job.
Rumours emerged over the weekend that Blues owner Roman Abramovich, who recently axed assistant first-team coach Ray Wilkins, was keen to bring the Barcelona boss to Stamford Bridge.
And the speculation grew when it was confirmed that sporting director Frank Arnesen is also on his way, with ex-Barca technical director Tiki Beguiristain reportedly in the running to be the Dane's replacement.
But when quizzed about the reports, Ancelotti said: “I have heard of Pep Guardiola to be frank.
“But you don’t have to ask me – the coach is always the last to know. Don’t ask me.
“We are not interested. We focus on our training and our matches.”
And when asked about the possible arrival of Beguiristain, the Italian added: “I think there was a player at Barcelona, but I don’t know what job he is doing now.”
