Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has said that he would like to stay on as manager of the Blues for the next decade of leading the side to a historic FA Cup and Premier League double this season. The Italian manager has said that he would like some stability after he became the club's fifth manager at the club in only 21 months. "If every season is like this I'd like to stay for 10 years. I'm ready to sign a new contract," said Ancelotti. "It is better to have stability for the club and also for the manager." "I like life in England and it is easy to manage Chelsea.” added the 50-year-old. "The club always supports you and gives you everything you need." Ancelotti will be preparing to trade on this summer's transfer market, but believes that he will not need to alter the side that beat Alex Ferguson's Manchester United to the title this season. Chelsea completed the historic double with a 1-0 FA Cup win over season-long strugglers Portsmouth. "I don't know what areas I need to strengthen," he added. "We have a lot of players injured who will be ready for next season, including Jose Bosingwa and Michael Essien. "We don't need a lot of changes but maybe one or two players could arrive." Ancelotti also insisted that Blues players Frank Lampard would not be leaving the side, after the England midfielder was linked with a possible move to Real Madrid. However, Ancelotti stated: "This story is a joke. Lampard will stay here. "Every time I said 'no, John Terry will stay here because he is important'. I don't want to do the same with Frank Lampard. He will stay here." Lampard will be featuring in Fabio Capello's initial 30-man World Cup squad, as they take on Mexico on May 24th with Betfair offering 2/5 odds of an England victory.
