Carlo Ancelotti: Insists he has yet to make a decision on his future.

Reports on Friday claimed the 53-year-old Italian had told the Qatari-owned French club he would be leaving at the end of the season and also suggested that he had held talks with Real Madrid and other clubs.

However these reports have been dismissed by Ancelotti, whose side are nine points clear of Marseille at the top of Ligue 1 with five matches remaining.

"I will take my decision after having spoken with the club when the title has been won," said former Chelsea manager Ancelotti.

"However, we have not spoken yet about the matter. We have time. It is not true that I told the club that I want to leave PSG.

"The press has talked about Real Madrid and other clubs, but I haven't spoken to anyone at another team. That is because I want to be transparent with the club for whom I work.

"It is a choice I alone must make, and it is not an easy one, but I am calm about it, serene even.

"I have a contract, therefore my hands are tied, as I have to take into account I am contracted till June 2014.

"I spoke to the players yesterday (Friday) because of all the rumours, but there is no hard news. I already told them before: I want to finish the championship as agreed with the club and we will speak afterwards so we can come to a decision."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
