Espanyol coach Valverde dismisses Barcelona talk

Espanyol boss Ernesto Valverde has dismissed talk linking him with Frank Rijkaard's job at Barcelona.

Espanyol chief Sebastian Javier claimed this week that Barca had asked about Valverde's situation, but the coach said yesterday: "We all know it's not true. It's a waste of time talking about it.

"I have another year left on my contract here and I'm happy."
