Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni distances himself from speculation linking him with the vacant Blackburn Rovers job.

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has branded speculation that he is interested in the Blackburn Rovers job as "agent chit chat".

Trapattoni is currently preparing his side for their match with Germany on Friday evening, and he has denied any interest in taking over the reins at the Championship club.

Trapattoni said: "I'm not aware of it. It must be agent chit chat.

"I'm not interested. I am concentrating on the task in hand."

Steve Kean resigned as Blackburn manager last month.
