Anceotti told Le Parisien: "I am not thinking about another club. Mourinho will have to wait a long time."

Real Madrid coach Mourinho has twice turned down approaches from PSG in the past, but on Friday told French sports channel BeInSport: "I think being a champion in another country is a motivation for me. I was a champion in four countries, so why not a fifth?

"At the moment, the PSG project is in good hands with Carlo Ancelotti and [director of football] Leonardo. So, for the moment, Paris does not need another coach."

Ancelotti - who saw his side draw 2-2 against rivals Marseille at the weekend - stressed: "My future is in Paris. I am very happy in the capital. I have a good relationship with everyone - the players, the fans, the club. I see my future here."

He said his side still had room for improvement after this weekend's result, explaining: "Marseille started well, then it was our turn - but we were not able to control the match after our second goal."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice to win the point, and Ancelotti added: "I'm not worried. We are in second place in the championship. Now we are going to use the international break to recover and regain energy."
