NYRB coach Petke plays down contract rumours

Mike Petke has dismissed claims that he has signed a new contract with New York Red Bulls.

Recently, Red Bull Head of Global Soccer Gerard Houllier suggested that Petke had penned an extension on the initial two-year deal he signed in January but the Red Bulls head coach has played down that speculation.

"I don't know where that came from," Petke told the NY Post after Sunday's elimination loss to Houston Dynamo.

"I haven't signed a thing."

Managing director Jerome de Bontin added: "Mike has a two-year contract. He has another year on his contract."
