Barcelona coach Tata Martino has dismissed retirement rumours for skipper Carles Puyol.

It was claimed over the weekend that Puyol is considering hanging up the boots.

"The only thing I can say is that he hasn't talked about it at all with me. I see him training normally and he always demands the most from himself. He's never said anything like that, so I don't see that there is any need to come out and deny it," said Martino.
