Reports linking Marco Amelia with Spartak Moscow may stop after the club’s Coach claimed to have not even heard of the Milan goalkeeper.
Amelia was linked with a switch to the Russian outfit as they prepare for the second stage of their League season, with the goalkeeper’s agent claiming that the club were tracking his client.
However, Valeri Karpin, acting as Coach and general manager at the club, denied all knowledge of a potential deal, or indeed of Amelia himself.
“A deal for Amelia? Absolutely not, we are honestly not in negotiations and if I’m honest, I do not even know who he is.
“I categorically deny these reports, they are lies.”
