PSG dismiss Antonio Conte rumoursby Jack Kitson / 25 July 2014, 09:00Tweet
French giants PSG have rubbished reports linking the former Juventus boss Antonio Conte with the club. The Italian had been linked with a shock move to the defending Ligue 1 champions, who are managed by Laurent Blanc, however the capital club have revealed that the reports are nothing but frenzied speculation.
Conte is currently out of work after surprisingly leaving the Old Lady earlier in the month, with the former AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri coming in as his replacement. Conte will no doubt be back in the dugout soon, and the 44-year-old remains the odds-on favourite to take charge of Italy, who have been managerless since Cesare Prandelli left following their early 2014 World Cup exit.
Meanwhile Blanc enjoyed a successful debut season with PSG, leading them to the league and cup double, along with the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The French Champions can be founds as the red-hot 1/7 to win the Ligue 1 title for a third time in a row, while they will also be bidding to make further waves in Europe, and can be backed at a best-priced 14/1 with William Hill to win the famous Champions League trophy.
