Former Lyon boss Rudi Garcia refuses to comment on speculation linking him with the interim managerial position at Manchester United.

Rudi Garcia has insisted that he will "neither confirm or deny" that he is a candidate for the interim managerial position at Manchester United.

The hierarchy at the Premier League outfit have signalled their intent to appoint a new boss until the end of the campaign after parting company with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Garcia, who has been out of work since departing Lyon in May, is one of a number of names who have been linked with a move to Old Trafford over the coming days.

However, speaking ahead of his media duties for Manchester City's fixture with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night, the Frenchman said that he did not want to comment on any speculation.

The 57-year-old is quoted by Manchester Evening News as saying: "In all seriousness, I don't usually comment on rumours in my career. I won't say anything about it.

"Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world. I neither confirm nor deny anything."

Caretaker boss Michael Carrick, former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde and ex-France coach Laurent Blanc are also said to be in the running for the post.
