Genoa coach Gian Piero Gasperini has dismissed reports linking him with Juventus.

"There are rumours, but these things can only come through my personal spokesman, who is the president, Enrico Preziosi," laughed Gasperini. "Seriously, it is better to concentrate on the sprint for the Champions League."

Reflecting on Diego Milito's derby hat-trick, Gasperini said: "He is an important symbol, but Genoa is not only him. I hope that with the coming crisis there won't be so many offers and Milito stays here."
