Italy coach Giovanni Trapattoni said on Wednesday there was no question of him resigning after his team's second round exit from the World Cup.
Italy lost on a 'golden goal' to co-hosts South Korea on Tuesday failing to make the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1986.
"I have a contract. It is not up to me. I remain full of enthusiasm," said Trapattoni, who has two more years left on his contract.
A spokesman for the Italian Football Federation said president Franco Carraro would present his view of the World Cup campaign later this week.
Trapattoni said he was satisfied with the way his team had performed in the tournament and wanted to continue his work.
"Anyone who was here saw how we prepared and how we played. There are the European Championships ahead and we have to start off again and to take the initiative," said Trapattoni.
The Italy coach reiterated his criticism of the refereeing in Italy's games in the World Cup and said his team were still getting over their exit.
"There is a lot of bitterness and anger on the part of everyone. I have felt this as a player also," said Trapattoni.
Trapattoni took over as Italy coach after Dino Zoff resigned in the wake of another 'golden goal' defeat -- to France in the final of Euro 2000.
