Salomon Kalou is the first Chelsea to player to indicate there is any discontent with manager Carlo Ancelotti, the Independent report.
The Ivorian, who joined the club back in 2006, was questioned about the future of the Italian but refused to publically back his much-maligned manager.
Kalou said: “We don’t make the decision. We’re here to play for the club and we’re happy to work with anyone. That’s for the board to decide.”
The striker, who appeared decidedly non-plussed after his winner against Tottenham, concluded: “The players are going to give their best on the pitch and that’s the most important thing.”

Daniel Sturridge has issued his parent club a stern ultimatum saying they must guarantee him first team football or he will leave, according to Sky Sports.
The striker has proven his worth during his loan spell at Bolton in the last half of this season – netting eight goals in 11 starts – a return that overshadows the strikers currently struggling at Stamford Bridge.
However, the under-21 international says although he doesn’t want to leave Chelsea, he needs the regularity of first team football: “I want to play at Chelsea but if the chances don’t come at Chelsea, then I will have to look elsewhere.”
He continued, “I don’t want to say I am going to leave the club, I want to play regularly, but for me next season it is very important to play first-team football.”
Neymar wants Blues move.
Neymar has re-stoked the fire surrounding his future by saying he now hopes Chelsea make a new bid for him, the Telegraph report.
The Brazilian starlet has confused many with his incessant mind changing, concerning any potential move to the Premier League, but his latest words now give the Blues further encouragement.
Speaking at Santos’ King Pele Training Centre, the 19-year-old said: “I was very happy about Chelsea’s interest because it is a club which every player would like to play for, but at that moment the right decision was to stay at Santos.”
He added: “To play in Europe is my dream. I was very proud of Chelsea’s interest and I hope to keep playing well so that this proposal can happen again.”
