Giovanni Trapattoni has dismissed reports linking him with struggling Serie A outfit Lazio as "just rumours".
The legendary Italian coach, who recently parted company with Republic of Ireland, has been tipped up as a potential replacement for Vladimir Petkovic, who is coming under mounting pressure in light of the Biancocelesti's run of one win from their last six Serie A games.
However, when asked by Corriere dello Sport if he was bound for the Stadio Olimpico, Trapattoni declared: "No, those are just rumours that are unfounded.
“With regards to my future, there have been some conversations [with interested parties] and I will try to make the right choice."
Trapattoni did hint, though, that he will be returning to work in his homeland.
“Italy is a marvellous country in which I’ve had success and satisfaction," the 74-year-old stated.
Trapattoni has taken charge of Milan, Inter, Fiorentina and, most successfully of all, Juventus, during his illustrious coaching career.
