Prandelli snubs Chelsea link

05 June 2008 03:18
Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli has dismissed speculation linking him with the vacant managerial job at Premier League powerhouses Chelsea. A number of Serie A bosses have been mooted as targets for the Blues, including AC Milan's Carlo Ancelotti and Luciano Spalletti of AS Roma. Prandelli has now joined the list of possible targets for the Blues, but he insists he is more than happy in Florence. He said: "I know nothing about Chelsea being interested in me. "I haven't been approached by anyone and, to be honest, it's just rumours and nothing more. "The whole of Florence loves this side like no other in Italy and everyone here is football mad. The fans live calcio." Prandelli, 50, has been in charge of La Viola since the summer of 2005, having previously enjoyed spells in charge of Lecce, Verona, Venezia, Parma and AS Roma.
