Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has told Jose Mourinho he is not going anywhere soon after the Portuguese revealed that he could be interested in managing the club one day.

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."
