Olympique Marseille coach Didier Deschamps has distanced himself from the Chelsea job.

Deschamps is regarded as an outsider for the position following Sunday's dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas.

"You're funny!" he replied to one journalist asking him about the Blues job. "This is not the time, it is not valid. I'm here. It is useless to make plans from what happens today, not tomorrow or after tomorrow.

"I see the results but I do not know what's going on internally there. The reality is that there is a coach who was removed from office. For me it is always sad because it's a tough job. No matter what country, team or coach ... It makes me never happy to see someone who has been dismissed. Although when you do this job, you know it can happen to us at any time."
