Zeman: If Inter president Moratti calls, I won't reply

With Claudio Ranieri under intense pressure, the Pescara boss has been heavily linked with a move to San Siro in the summer - but the Czech claims he has no interest in the job
Zdenek Zeman insists that even if Inter president Massimo Moratti comes calling, he will not answer.

It has been reported that the Pescara boss has been identified as one of several candidates to replace current coach Claudio Ranieri at the end of the season.

However, Zeman is not expecting his phone to ring any time soon, claiming that the Nerazzurri supremo is most likely still smarting from the time the Czech rejected his advances while in charge of Foggia.

"I haven't heard from Moratti since 1994, almost 20 years ago, when he called me but I, probably mistakenly, replied that I was already committed [to going to Lazio]," he told Corriere dello Sport.

"Perhaps he was offended and so I haven't heard any more. If he calls me back now? Impossible ... I do not answer unknown numbers!"

Inter currently sit seventh in Serie A and are in danger of missing out of qualifying for next season's Champions League.
