Spalletti fed up with Juve talk

Zenit St Petersburg Coach Luciano Spalletti claims he is tired of having to deny links with Juventus.

The 52-year-old is said to be Juventus' first choice to replace Gigi Del Neri at the end of this season.

Juventus currently lie seventh in Serie A and there is disappointment at a perceived lack of progress.

Spalletti has frequently rejected the hypothesis of joining Juventus but the rumours persist.

Interviewed by the local media in Russia, the former Roma tactician was asked what he thought about the Juventus reports.

"You need to take them for what they are," Spalletti said. "They're obviously rumours.

"I am happy in St Petersburg. How many times do I have to repeat that I am only thinking about Zenit and not another team?"
