Montella to dash Cottagers
13 Dec 2006 - 11:34:00
Fulham's hopes of securing the services of Vincenzo Montella appear to have been dashed after the Roma striker revealed that neither he or the Rome club have discussed his future.
Montella, a former Italy international, has been restricted to a handful of cameo appearances this season under current coach Luciano Spalletti.
The 32-year-old hitman arrived at the Stadio Olimpico in a £15million transfer from Sampdoria in 2001 and helped Roma win the Scudetto during his first season in the Eternal City.
The Cottagers have been heavily linked with a January move for the out-of-favour striker but Montella - who has been plagued by back and neck injuries during the last two seasons - appears to be happy to wait for his chance.
"Nothing has been decided about my future," he claimed. "Neither myself or Roma have come up with a plan.
"I want to underline that nothing at all has occurred between the coach and I.
"My lack of action is purely down to tactical reasons and I have to accept that."
