Villas Boas rejects links to Roma

Porto Coach Andre Villas Boas has vehemently denied reports that indicate he has been in talks with Roma and Juventus.

The 33-year-old is widely regarded as the brightest young tactician in Europe.

His Porto side have already won the League and take on Villarreal in the Europa League semi-finals.

"There have been some incredible stories," he claimed. "They say that I said no to Roma because I am going to Liverpool: it's absurd.

"Rumours are natural given what this team has done, but anyone it's a false piece of information.

"It's absurd to say that teams are coming to see me.

"During a match a Coach does nothing but dress well and run around a little."
