Mourinho quashes Zanetti rumours

27 February 2014, 13:24

Milan - Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho quashed reports the Premier League giants had offered Inter Milan icon Javier Zanetti a player-coaching deal.

Several media outlets last week cited a report on www.insidefutbol.com which said Mourinho, who steered Inter to an historic Champions League, league title and Cup treble in 2010, wanted to bring the veteran defender to the club.

In an interview with Italian television after Wednesday's 1-1 Champions League draw away to Galatasaray, Mourinho said: "It's not true. He's at Inter and always will be."

Zanetti last week poured cold water on the report, saying: "Honestly, I have a great rapport with Mourinho. We hear from each other frequently, but we've never discussed these things.

"I've always stressed that this club (Inter) is my life and my home. And it's my desire to stay here. I don't need to add anything else."

Zanetti has made only five league appearances this season since returning from a long injury lay-off following the rupture of his Achilles tendon in April 2013.
