Inter Milan coach Spalletti hits out at press over job rumours

Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti has again hit out at the press for speculating about his future.

Spalletti addressed the situation after Monday night's victory over Chievo Verona.

He stated, “For three months, the same things have been said. La Gazzetta dello Sport has written the same for three months. If someone says it'll rain tomorrow every day, eventually it will probably rain," explained Spalletti on Sky.

“You keep asking me the same things every week and I don't want to be rude by not responding. If La Gazzetta dello Sport have written the same thing for two years, and over the last three months it was every single day, then they must know something.

“They are also pretty insulting, with headlines saying you're spent, you're empty, a flop, that in the end weighs on you.

“It's not about me, anyway, because this sort of rumour mill has been particularly strong around Inter for seven years. It's also nasty and offensive in its language and that is not the same way with other clubs. I don't know if there are some sort of family and friendship issues here, but it is different with Inter."
