Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti insists there's been no approach to sacked Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Villas-Boas has been linked with Claudio Ranieri's job at Inter.

"These are just rumours, absolutely," the President told journalists outside his Milan office.

"I saw parts of the Catania game. My mood was disastrous during the worst part of the match, when we were losing, then I have to say it was very important to have that fightback and show of character, while there were also improvements in the football.

"This can count for a great deal in certain terms, as it gives us a wake-up call."
