Euro coach dismisses Blues links

Highly-rated Porto boss Andre Villas-Boas has described reports linking him with the managerial position at Chelsea as "absurd".

Villas-Boas is currently the youngest coach in Portuguese football, at the age of 33, but has already won the league title and led his team to the Europa League final.

Despite continued speculation over the future of Carlo Ancelotti, Villas-Boas has rejected talk of a move to Stamford Bridge and says he intends to stay at Porto.

Former Chelsea caretaker Guus Hiddink also continues to be linked with a return, but his agent has reiterated that there is "no chance" of the Dutchman leaving the role of Turkey national team coach before November.

Ancelotti continues to act with dignity as the rumours grow over his future and the Italian insists that he will not know what the future has in store, saying "we have to just wait one week."
