Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that he is happy at the club and is not interested in returning to Juventus following the departure of Massimiliano Allegri, and said that he remains committed to the team.


Juventus are looking for a new manager after Allegri confirmed that he would be leaving the team after five years in charge. The team won the Serie A title in all five seasons but were unable to win the Champions League.


Ancelotti has been one of the names suggested to replace Allegri at Juventus, but the Italian has insisted that he has no desire to return to his former team and is happy at Napoli.



"I have a clause on May 30, and I hope Napoli will exercise it," he told Sky Sport Italia, according to Goal. "I'm tied to the club and I'd like to stay for another two years. I'm happy to be here. The coach is always the last to know anything. They always live in doubt. I know sackings are part of our work. Experience shows that, for coaches, only results count so planning becomes difficult. I suffered more when I was sacked by Juventus, but then I got used to it."


The club is seemingly looking at Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri and Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino as replacements, with reports suggesting they have already approached the former. Reports earlier in the season also linked Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola with the job, going so far as to suggest the Spaniard already has a deal in place.
