The Argentine trainer insisted there is no truth to speculation linking him with the Nerazzurri, who are understood to be looking for alternatives to Villas-Boas

Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelo Bielsa has dismissed reports linking him with the Inter hot-seat.

The 56-year-old is thought to be at the top of Inter president Massimo Moratti's wish-list after the Nerazzurri supremo was warned by Jose Mourinho against installing Andre Villas-Boas as the club's new coach.

But Bielsa, who oversaw Athletic's 4-2 Europa League quarter-final first-leg victory over Schalke on Thursday, insisted he is not paying attention to such reports.

"I do not think it is worth it to comment on scenarios which lack foundation," he told reporters after the game.

Inter appointed Andrea Stramaccioni as coach earlier in the week after parting company with Claudio Ranieri following a run of poor results.

It is believed that Stramaccioni's continuity at the club will depend on Inter's Serie A finish at the end of the season, as the Nerazzurri currently sit eighth in the Serie A table, 10 points off the Champions League places.
