LONDON (Reuters) - Burberry chief designer Riccardo Tisci remains "excited" about the British luxury brand, and the company is confident he will not follow Chief Executive Marco Gobbetti out of the door, Chief Financial Officer Julie Brown said.

"(Tisci) remains very excited by the opportunity to continue to inspire our customers with his imprint on Burberry's identity, reinforced by the response to his latest collection," Brown told reporters on Friday.

"We're very, very confident of Riccardo's position."
