Getafe coach Michael Laudrup has blasted speculation linking him with a switch to Chelsea in the close season.

The charismatic Dane has been forwarded as the latest candidate to become Blues boss as the pressure grows on Avram Grant following the shock FA Cup exit at Barnsley.

After some sources claimed tentative enquiries have already been made to the 43-year-old, he responded with a firm rebuttal.

"I've learned to live with rumours," he told Ekstra Bladet. "No matter how stupid they are."
