Jorge Sampaoli has denied links to Barcelona, saying he is committed to the project at Sevilla to the death.
The Sevilla manager has been linked with the move to Barcelona, since Enrique announced he’ll be leaving at the end of the season.
However, Sampaoli who joined Sevilla is committed to the club and they’re third on the table and two points off the summit.
The 56-year-old, who guided Chile to Copa America glory, is unaware of interest in his services.
“The Barcelona job? That question has no answer because it doesn’t exist,” Sampaoli said after Thursday’s 1-0 win at home to Athletic Bilbao.
“I have no idea what is being said, at this stage of the season to speak of candidates doesn’t make sense.
“I am connected with this sporting project at Sevilla to death.”
Sampaoli signed a deal until the 2017-18 campaign upon his arrival, and the Argentine tactician plans to extend his stay.
“We still haven’t met with representatives to express our future projects within the structure of the club,” he continued.
“But to be sure, there are intentions to do so.”
