Porto coach rubbishes speculation over future

Porto coach Andre Villas Boas has rubbished speculation linking him with other jobs. The 33-year-old has already been labelled the new 'Jose Mourinho' after guiding Porto to the Portuguese title in his first full season in charge. Villas Boas is a protege of Mourinho and his abilities have not gone unnoticed, which has seen him strongly linked with the likes of Roma, Juventus, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in recent months. But speaking ahead of Porto's Europa League semi-final first-leg clash with Villarreal, he distanced himself from the reports. "There are incredible stories. Supposedly I said no to Roma because I was going to Liverpool, it's absurd," he said. "The speculation is natural, given what this team has been doing. But it is still false information."
