Ancelotti: No need to spend

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti claims the club will not have to spend big during the summer as they look to prepare for next season.

Ancelotti is still unsure of his position at Stamford Bridge after a disappointing campaign that has seen the Blues end trophyless, despite winning the Double last term.

It remains to be seen whether owner Roman Abramovich opts to replace the Italian, although certain observers have questioned if this would be a worthwhile move.

Chelsea splashed the cash in the January transfer window, landing Fernando Torres and David Luiz for big fees, and Ancelotti believes the club now have a squad capable of challenging for top honours in the future.

"I think this team, to maintain their position at the top, doesn't need to spend a lot of money,'' he said. "We spent a lot in January on (Fernando) Torres and (David) Luiz, and Ramires last summer. We won't need a lot of changes to stay at the top.''

On his own position, he added: "The club have to judge my job - be objective. If they decide to change, it's not a problem. You won't see me crying or doing something. I will accept the decision of the club and find another 'solution'.''

Chelsea take on Everton in the final Premier League game of the season on Sunday, and Ancelotti hopes to bow out on a high.

"On Sunday, we want to play at our best,'' he remarked. "It will not be easy because the last week of training when obviously there are not a lot of aims to reach, it's not easy to maintain concentration and stay focused. But we want to try our best against Everton and finish the season well."

He continued: "When I started my experience here in England, if someone had told me that we would win the FA Cup and the Premier League in two years, I'd have been happy.

"In these two years, I have to be happy because the team, last year, was fantastic. This year was not so good. But we can learn from this experience to do better next season.'

"I think every time, every experience, it's important to learn and improve your experience, your knowledge,'' the former AC Milan and Juventus boss said.

"This season was nothing special. We had problems, as we had a lot of times in my career. We were not able to win the league as we did last year, but we didn't play at our best. But we're still in a good position - we were able to reach second place."
