Sevilla head coach Jorge Sampaoli says he has not been contacted by Barcelona about replacing Luis Enrique at the end of the season.
The former Chile boss is under contract with Sevilla until the end of the season.
“I do not have to renew because I have a contract,” he said. “Nor is it real that Barcelona have taken an interest in me, they did not contact me.”
Sampaoli also denied that his future will be linked to that of sporting director Monchi, who could reportedly leave in the summer.
“I would like Monchi to stay, but it is not a condition for me to stay,” he added.
“According to the football project that has Sevilla, one is here to help or not, I feel useful, loved and respected.”
