Berlin:

Bayern Munich's Dutch coach Louis van Gaal on Saturday rubbished reports in the German media of a possible end-of-season switch to Italian giants Juventus.

"These are the sort of sounds you hear in a toilet," Van Gaal said after Bayern beat German league bottom side Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 to go third in the table.

Van Gaal's comments came after German daily Bild reported Saturday the Dutchman, whose Bayern contract will be terminated next month, a year early, has been approached to replace Juventus coach Luigi del Neri.

Bild's source is Van Gaal's wife, Truus, who is reported to have talked in a Munich restaurant about a possible move to Turin, but the Bayern coach said he regards any such talk as nonsense.

"My wife is the last person in the world to talk like this, because she knows I'm taking a sabbatical. I promised her I will do it," insisted the Dutchman.

Van Gaal will be replaced by Bayer Leverkusen coach Jupp Heynckes at the end of the season for his third stint in Munich.
