Mourinho denies lining up new job

Jose Mourinho has said he has not spoken to any other club about his future.

The Internazionale coach responded to media reports that he could leave after this season by issuing a statement yesterday on his club's website. It read: "I haven't spoken with any club and, like all Inter fans, I too am thinking only about the games with Siena and Bayern Munich."

The club also denied reports they have approached Rafael Benitez or any other coach as a possible replacement for Mourinho.

A statement from Inter read: "FC Internazionale underlines that absolutely no contact has been made with coaches – of other clubs or national teams – given that the club has a contract with Jose Mourinho until 2012, and that everybody is focused exclusively on the team's important upcoming commitments."

Inter can clinch the Serie A title against Siena on Sunday and face Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on 22 May.
