Carlo Ancelotti has declared that he is keen to continue as Paris Saint-Germain coach.

The Italian tactician, who has led PSG to the top of France’s Ligue 1 and to the Round of 16 in the Champions League, sees his current deal run out at the end of the season, although he looks on course to secure a league finish which would activate a one-year extension.

Ancelotti seems to be thinking beyond then even though and is happy at the Parc des Princes.

He did insist though that if PSG are not pleased with his work, he has no problem heading elsewhere.

"My contract ends on 30th June", Ancelotti told French sports daily L’Equipe.


"Depending on the league finish, I have another year on my contract at the end of the season, if PSG finish in the top three in Ligue 1 and qualify for the Champions League.

"I want to stay, but I know that at the end of the season the club will decide if they are happy or not with my work.

"And if they are not happy….

"I am very happy here, but if the club are not happy, I have no problem changing."

Ancelotti is aiming to continue PSG’s progress in the Champions League this season, starting tomorrow, when the French giants visit Valencia for the first leg of their Round of 16 tie.

At the top of Ligue 1, the former Chelsea boss has led PSG to hold a six-point lead over second-placed Lyon.
