Andre Villas-Boas' agent has spoken out amidst interest from Roma, with the Serie A club being connected to the former Chelsea manager by various Italian media outlets.

Villas-Boas was sacked on Sunday morning by Blues owner Roman Abramovich, after a string of bad results which made him the most unsuccessful manager since Glenn Hoddle.

And while he was connected with Inter Milan in the past, the Portuguese tactician is now being linked to Roma, though his agent insists he is still recovering from what happened at Chelsea.

"I'm in London with him, and we have not had contact with Rome," Carlos Goncalves said - via

"I not know who put out that news. We have the utmost respect for a team like Roma, but right now Andre is still dealing with what happened with Chelsea.

"At this time he does not really want to be thinking about anything else."

Villas-Boas was only in charge at Chelsea for nine months, and is the eighth manager to be sacked under Abramovich's ownership in nine years.

Jose Mourinho is widely believed to be favourite to take over the role at Stamford Bridge, while Pep Guardiola and Rafa Benitez have also been connected with the role.

Porto chairman Porto Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa believes that Villas-Boas will go to Inter, with the manager's former boss telling reporters in mid February: "If he leaves Chelsea, he'll be the next coach of Inter.
