Fiorentina coach Sinisa Mihajlovic insists the Inter Milan job has never been offered to him.

Mihajlovic was also asked if he was in negotiations with Inter last summer, before Rafa Benitez was hired.

"I do talk to the President every now and then and there is mutual respect, but I have never been close to signing for Inter," said Mihajlovic.

The Viola coach was an assistant at Inter to Roberto Mancini.
