Tottenham Hotspur news: Mauricio Pochettino snubs Argentina job and reveals he’s happy to stay at Spurs
Mauricio Pochettino insists he is happy at Tottenham following speculation linking him with the vacant Argentina job.
The 44-year-old, a former Argentina international, was reportedly on the shortlist to succeed Gerardo Martino, who resigned as head coach of the national side after last month’s Copa America final defeat to Chile.
But having led Spurs to a third-place finish in the Premier League last term, he wants to stay at White Hart Lane.
“I think the speculation is normal because I am an Argentinian coach at a top club in England,” said Pochettino, currently in Australia on Tottenham’s pre-season tour, .
“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.”
