Sinisa Mihajlovic insists that he is not planning to leave his job as Serbia coach and move to Sampdoria.

Serbia coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has dismissed reports that he will become the new manager of Sampdoria.

Reports in the Italian media have claimed that the 44-year-old has agreed to take over the coaching responsibilities at the Genoa-based outfit following the sacking of Delio Rossi.

"There is no agreement with Sampdoria," Football Italia quotes him as saying. "I'm in charge of Serbia and while that is the case then I don't want to talk about any clubs.

"My priority is Serbia and that comes before anything else. We have a tough test against Russia tomorrow and that is all I'm thinking about.

"Then, at the start of next week, I'll speak with the Federation officials and we'll see what could happen next."

Mihajlovic has coached Bologna, Catania and Fiorentina in Italy.
