Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has rubbished rumours linking him with a move to Chelsea. Recent reports have linked the Dutchman with a move to Stamford Bridge after he was quoted saying that he would love for Guus Hiddink to put in a good word for him with Chelsea

In an interview with Dutch radio station Radio 538, he said: “If Guus puts a good word in for me, that would be a big influence.”

However, he has now claimed that he was just answering a question he was asked about Chelsea, and he has no intentions of leaving his job at St Mary’s Stadium.

That’s the problem when you do an interview in Dutch. It’s all bulls***. You can’t win when you talk to them,” he said.

“I continue at Southampton, and I still have one year on my contract.”

He added: “After that, who knows. I didn’t say anything about Chelsea; I got asked about Chelsea and about Hiddink, so I answered. It’s all bulls***.”
