Udinese director of sport Cristiano Giaretta slammed “unfounded claims” they will sack Coach Andrea Stramaccioni.
The rumours emerged after a 1-0 home defeat to Sassuolo left them fifth from bottom.
“There was no meeting with Stramaccioni and no divergence of opinions on transfer strategy,” assured Giaretta.
“We will speak at the end of the season and right now have another game to think about. We only discuss these matters around renewals and other issues when the campaign has been completed.
“I can categorically deny that we met with the Coach to discuss strategies, as today’s reports suggested.
“I don’t understand how these unfounded claims can get out there.”
