|Carlo Ancelotti's future looks glum|
Ray Wilkins was axed as Ancelotti's assistant earlier this month and, on Saturday, the club confirmed Frank Arnesen would be leaving his position as sporting director at the end of the season.
Speaking after Sunday's 1-1 dismal draw at Newcastle United, Ancelotti refused to drawn in answering questions over his future.
"I have heard of Pep Guardiola, to be frank," said Ancelotti, whose Premier League champions lost top spot to Manchester United at the weekend.
"But you don't have to ask me - the coach is always the last to know. Don't ask me.
"We are not interested. We focus on our training and our matches."
Ancelotti also laughed off the claims that Chelsea are aiming to appoint Beguiristain as Arnesen's successor in West London.
The Italian joked: "I don't know this name. I think there was a player at Barcelona, but I don't know what job he is doing now."
