Italian Football Federation (FIGC) commissioner Roberto Fabbricini revealed Antonio Conte is eager to return to his role as Italy coach, but the Chelsea manager has now responded to those links.
Conte led the Blues to Premier League success in his first season with the club, but the second season has not gone so smoothly.
The Premier League champions currently find themselves in fourth spot, following their 3-0 loss to Stamford Bridge at home.
"I don't know why [there is so much speculation].
"My intention, my will is to respect my contract. From the start of the season there has been a lot of speculation, rumours.
"The only thing I know is that I still have 18 months left on my contract and my will is to stay here and continue my work. I don't see a problem with this."
