Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas insists he never came close to joining a Serie A club in the summer.
"In the summer I was close to Napoli or Inter? No, absolutely not. I have nothing to say," smiled AVB.
"But I thank both president Moratti and De Laurentiis for the beautiful words they've said about me. They have talented engineers, Mazzarri and Ranieri are big Italian coaches and I am sure they will win with their teams."
