Pochettino not interested in Argentina job

26 July 2016, 21:37

London - Mauricio Pochettino says he is not interested in the vacant coaching post with his native Argentina because he is happy at Premier League side Spurs.

The 44-year-old -- who turned Spurs into title contenders last season before they faded in the final few weeks and ended up third -- said it was natural that being in charge of a high-profile club would see him linked with his country's top job.

"I think the speculation is normal because I am an Argentinian coach at a top club in England," Pochettino, presently in Australia on Tottenham's pre-season tour, was quoted as saying in several British newspapers.

"There are a lot of rumours that appear in the media but I am happy at Tottenham and for that reason, this is not the right moment."

The Argentina post became available when Gerardo Martino resigned days after losing to Chile in the Copa America Centenario final on penalties for the second successive year.
