The former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino reportedly rejected the opportunity to take over as the new Monaco boss.

Monaco sacked Robert Moreno over the weekend making him the fourth boss to be axed in the last two years with the former Bayern Munich manager, Niko Kovac succeeding him.

However, in The Athletic opinion, Kovac was not the first choice of the Principality club. Mauricio Pochettino was. Newly appointed sporting director Paul Mitchell approached Pochettino and offered him the job which he later on rejected.

The opportunity presented to Pochettino is described as “lucrative” but it wasn’t enough for the ex-Southampton boss to make the move probably because Monaco finished ninth in the curtailed Ligue 1 campaign thus missing out on European football next season and Pochettino is eyeing for an opportunity with a club in the Champions League.

Pochettino sheds light why he rejected the Monaco contract

The Argentine, Pochettino hasn’t spoken out on the claims but looking back on things he said about his future, he appears to have shed some light on what is happening.

In October 2019, he said, “In five-and-a-half years, every single press conference we have talked about my future. I hope because we are still talking, it means that I am going to spend five more years here.”

After he was sacked, he again addressed his future plans saying, “I am open to anything at this point and will keep my options open”.

Hurriedly, the former coach began discussing Spurs saying, “I am happy to see Tottenham doing well since I like the club very much”.  He went ahead to suggest he could return to the club or at least the Premier League at some point.

Reading between the lines, it seems Pochettino is holding out a job in England and is keen to work in the top flight once again. Given his love Spurs, a return to North London may not entirely be off the cars especially considering Mourinho only spends around two-to-three years at a club.
