AVB: Barca rumours groundless

Zenit St Petersburg boss Andre Villas-Boas has insisted that rumours he is on his way to Barcelona are ‘groundless’.

Stories have emerged in recent weeks that Blaugrana boss Tata Martino will be relieved of his duties at Camp Nou come the end of the season.

But the Portuguese Coach has claimed that suggestions he is currently in negotiations with the Catalans are nonsense.

“All the rumours about my negotiations with Barcelona are completely groundless," Villas-Boas told reporters.

“I've signed the contract with Zenit and I'm set to stay here until its expiry date.

“My work with Zenit is my top priority.”
