Via their official English language Twitter account, AS Monaco moved to deny rumours concerning José Mourinho.
Speaking to Catalan paper Sport last week, a minority Monaco shareholder called Alessandro Proto claimed he met with Chelsea chief Roman Abramovich in London to buy Mourinho out of his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Monaco responded to these allegations today in the following manner via social media site Twitter:
“AS Monaco would invite the media to not repeat extravagant and unsubstantiated rumours from a supposedly minority shareholder.”
This, on the same day that reports concerning Leonardo Jardim and Chelsea have emerged from reputable French sources.
