Liverpool have rubbished Alessandro del Piero's claims that he turned them down.

The Juventus legend says he rejected the Reds in respect to the victims of the Heysel tragedy, but Liverpool insist there was NO OFFER for the Italian to turn down.

An Anfield official said: "No attempt was made to sign Alessandro Del Piero.

"Nobody at Liverpool spoke to the player or his representatives at any stage about the possibility of him joining the club."
