Cruzeiro coach Mano Menezes denies receiving a proposal from China
During a press conference on Friday, Mano Menezes denied any possibility of leaving Cruzeiro to go to Chinese football at the end of the season.
Cuca is close to leaving Chinese club Shandong Luneng, and there were reports that the leading name to replace Cuca was Mano Menezes. Cruzeiro affirms that they haven't been contacted by anyone, and the club hopes the coach will fulfill his contract, which runs until December 2017. Mano, who arrived at Cruzeiro to replace Vanderlei Luxemburgo, says that he will speak to the press if he receive any proposals. He said: "The first thing I have to say is that there is absolutely nothing about it. It is a time of much speculation, both in Brazil and abroad. I have nothing to say because there is nothing official. I don't like talking about speculation. If there is an official proposal, I will come and talk to you, as I've always done. For now, there is nothing."
