Gasperini rejects Viola link

Former Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini has distanced himself from reports linking him with Fiorentina.

Whispers over recent weeks have seen Gasperini talked about as a contender to be handed the Viola hotseat next season.

However, talking to TMW today, the former Juventus youth boss insisted that he knew nothing of the reports.

"It's all conjecture that doesn't belong to me," he stated on Monday. "There is a championship going on at the minute and Fiorentina already have a Coach."

Fiorentina appointed Sinisa Mihajlovic in the summer as a replacement for Cesare Prandelli once he took charge of the Italian national side.

The Viola haven't impressed under the Serb and currently find themselves in 11th place with just 29 points from 23 games.
