Everyone knows the tabloid speculation linking the current FC Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard with a move to Chelsea in the summer. Even Rijkaard himself is aware of the fact!
But the Dutchman denies that he wants to take charge of the Blues and insists:
I am aware of the rumours but they are that – rumours – and they have not affected me or my team.
Right now I am just concentrating on getting results on the pitch.
I am not thinking about anything else at the moment.
Yet the rumours would continue. More often than not, denials are actually observed for some queer reason to be seen as acceptance. Well, you draw your own conclusions now.
