Inter have not contacted me - former Palermo boss Delio Rossi

Italian boss has said the former champions have not been in touch and warned presidents they need to offer serious projects to prospective coaches
Former Palermo coach Delio Rossi admits Inter have not approached him over becoming Leonardo's replacement on the bench.

Reports on Tuesday claimed ex-Genoa man Gian Piero Gasperini was in talks with the club.

This followed reports Fabio Capello was unavailable, only for Inter chief Marco Branca to deny contact with the England boss had taken place.

Gasperini said he would "not speak" about the news linking him with Inter, while Rossi's name continued to circulate.

However, the former Lazio man has moved to declare his position amid a plenty of confusion stemming from San Siro voices.

"I have not been contacted, but I have read lots of names which I don't understand," he told Radio Mana Mana.

"Presidents think a Louis van Gaal is the same thing as a Delio Rossi, but this is not the case.

"A president must find the right project and find the right person who can take it forward. And they must also provide so the coach can do that."

Rossi was sacked by Palermo in February before being reappointed six weeks later. He left the club once again at the end of the term.
