Cruyff: Played down rumours linking him with Liverpool
JOHAN CRUYFF REJECTS LIVERPOOL LINK
Johan Cruyff has rejected rumours linking him with a move to Liverpool as their new director of football.
It had been suggested Dutch legend Cruyff was on Liverpool's wanted list to replace Damien Comolli following the Frenchman's shock departure last weekend.
However, Cruyff, in his column for Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, admits he is in the dark over the links and has played down the speculation.
"I see my name is being mentioned in connection with Liverpool," wrote Cruyff.
"I don't know where that has come from because I have not heard anything from them. There has been no contact whatsoever.
"If you just read speculation like this, without any substance to it, there is no point taking it seriously. It is just talk."
