Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers insists that he doesn't want the vacant manager's job at his former club Chelsea.
The Swans boss has made it clear to the fans that they don't need to panic, as he wants to stay at the Liberty Stadium.
After losing 1-0 against West Brom last weekend, it was inevitable really that Andre Villas-Boas was sacked from his job at Stamford Bridge following a poor run of results.
Rodgers has hinted that a move to Chelsea could potentially 'destroy' his career - a managerial career that has started brilliantly for the young Irishman so far.
'For me the focus is on Swansea,' said Rodgers, who signed a new three-and-a-half year deal last month.
'I came here to do a job. The story for us all so far has been fantastic and I hope that will continue.
'If any of our fans are wondering about me and Chelsea, they need not panic.
'I am trying to build my career and not destroy it.'
Rodgers also spoke about Villas-Boas' departure:
'It's sad to see Andre depart.
'The transition that is needed at the club is very much evident, and it's a job that requires sensitivity about where the club is at.
'It's about understanding and respecting what the players have done there and also having that ruthless streak to manage the club.
'I feel Andre tried to do those things but, for whatever reason, it just hasn't worked out.'
Rodgers also spoke about Chelsea as a club and the sort of job it is to manager them:
'There is so much going for Chelsea — it's a terrific club,'
'But you can't continue doing what they do and have success. It does not work.
'The next manager who goes in there will have the same problems and issues.
'It's a big job and demanding job — that's how it is at the big clubs and that's why the salaries are so high.
'It's certainly going to be interesting to see what route they go down now.'
