Brisbane Lions coach Justin Leppitsch believes he still has the backing of football director Leigh Matthews, despite reports both will exit the club at the end of the AFL season.

Fairfax Media reported this week Leppitsch would be sacked at year's end with Matthews to step down from his role on the Lions' board.

"If there's stuff going on in the background maybe you guys know more than me. I'm just really here to coach the team," Leppitsch told reporters on Thursday.
