Preziosi laughs off Toni reports

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has laughed off reports linking Milan and Inter with a bid for Luca Toni in the January transfer window.

The veteran striker only joined Genoa in the summer and it is unlikely Preziosi would sanction the sale of another of his star players after agreeing to let Andrea Ranocchia join Inter.

Asked about the reports, Preziosi joked: "Yes, it's true. Toni is going to Milan just as Ronaldinho is going to Lumezzane."

The toy maker also rejected claims that he is among the parties interested in buying Roma.

"I don't know who put this story out. But it's someone wicked who did it. When I'm finished with Genoa, I'm finished with football.

"Only the stupid and wicked or the unprofessional put these rumours around.

"I am interested in finishing this job. Then we'll see and do the sums on my time as President."
