Palermo coach Bortolo Mutti is ignoring sack rumours.

Mutti is in the firing line of Rosanero president Maurizio Zamparini.

"I am not remotely interested by the usual talk that my bench could be at risk in case of a negative result. It's the same thing the media keep trotting out through the week," moaned Mutti in his press conference.

"I only tried to work with the team in a relaxed manner, even if as always I had to deal with a series of players who are unavailable."
