Edy Reja rejects Fiorentina stories

The former Biancocelesti trainer guaranteed that he has not been in touch with the Florence-based club and noted he may take a break from coaching
Former Lazio coach Edy Reja has quashed suggestions that he has held talks with Fiorentina.

The 66-year-old announced on Thursday that he had left his role in the Italian capital despite having the backing of the club's board after guiding the Biancocelesti to a fourth-placed finish in Serie A.

He was immediately associated with Fiorentina, who are on the lookout for a new coach after sacking Delio Rossi and appointing team director Vincenzo Guerini as caretaker boss.

However, Reja has denied such stories and hinted that he may take a sabbatical from football.

"I have never had any contact with Fiorentina and I do not think I will take any offer into consideration," he told Radio Blu.

"I will be honest, I have not had any contact with Fiorentina."
