Carlo Ancelotti does not believe Chelsea require a major summer overhaul, but admiited his has not been good enough this season.
With Chelsea in danger of finishing this campaign empty-handed, Ancelotti’s job as manager is perceived to be under threat.
There are also question marks regarding the futures of several senior players at Stamford Bridge, with new contracts yet to be offered to certain members of the squad.
However, after spending £75million on David Luiz and Fernando Torres in January, Ancelotti is not expecting a summer of change.
“I don’t think there will be a lot of changes during the summer because we bought very important players in January, David Luiz and Torres,” said Ancelotti.
“I don’t think we need to have too many more changes.”
Ancelotti had previously brought in Ramires and Yossi Benayoun last summer, but five experienced players from last season’s squad left Stamford Bridge.
The Italian feels injuries hit his squad at the wrong time of the season, adding: “I don’t think the squad was good enough this year.
“At the start of the season, we couldn’t have envisaged having very important players out at the same time.
“We struggled to manage this – without Lampard, Drogba, Essien, Terry, Alex. It was very difficult.
“At a certain point in the season, we needed to put (Paulo) Ferreira in at centre-back because we’d lost all our other centre-backs.
“You cannot think at the beginning of the season that you would have all these players out. In the bad moments, it was difficult for us to move on without these players and I think it cost us quite a few points.”
