Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti would consider coaching England, but sees his distant future with the Blues.
The Italian coach joined the West London club from AC Milan at the start of last season, and enjoyed great success in winning the Premier League and FA Cup in his first campaign.
Since Chelsea's glory years came around after owner Roman Abramovich took over, Jose Mourinho has been the club's longest serving manager with just over three years at the club.
Ancelotti however admitted he wanted to be in charge a lot longer, hoping to match Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's 24 years, and counting, at the helm.
But he did not rule out the possibility of one day following in the footsteps of fellow Italian, and his former coach at Milan, Fabio Capello.
"Why not?" he told Sky Sports News when asked about managing England.
"But not now, right now my aim is I want to stay the same time that Ferguson stayed at Manchester United.
"After that, I can think about the national team.
"I'm serious, in 24 years I will be 75 years old but I don't know if I'll be able to manage the national team then."
