Lippi laughs off United link

08 Jul 2006 - 14:34:42

Italy coach Marcello Lippi has laughed off speculation linking him with an imminent move to Manchester United.

Reports in the Italian media suggested Lippi would take up a coaching position at Old Trafford next season, with a view to eventually becoming Sir Alex Ferguson's successor as manager.

"How can you work in a place where you don't even know the language?" said Lippi, who has guided Italy to Sunday's World Cup final against France.

"It's not true. All I am interested in is winning the World Cup and I find it useless to speak about the rest.

"If you don't believe me, come and see where I will be in 15 or 20 days' time. It will not be in Manchester."

United officials had earlier described the reports as containing "no truth".
