thumbnail Hello,

Van Basten's agent has downplayed the rumours linking the Dutch coach with Milan...

A number of reports earlier this week suggested that Dutch coach Marco van Basten is in the frame for the position of head coach at Italian giants Milan, but Van Basten's agent has now downplayed any such rumours.

"I have no idea where that rumour comes from. We didn't start it and I can assure you that Milan have not contacted Marco van Basten," Perry van Overeem, Van Basten's agent, was quoted as saying by Goal.com NL.

"However, there are a number of other teams and some national teams that have approached us. I'm not going to reveal any names, since Marco has snubbed them all. He's not yet ready to make a decision about his future.

"There were some big names among the national teams that wanted him, but Marco would currently prefer to work at a club. It's not even sure though that he will continue his coaching career. Time will tell what Marco decides to do."
