PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino insists a return to Tottenham was never considered.

The Argentine had been one of the favourites to be named Jose Mourinho's successor at Tottenham before Nuno's appointment.

But speaking to Le Parisien, Pochettino dismissed the "rumours" he was heading back to Tottenham less than two years after his sacking, and said his relaxed relationship with club chiefs meant he didn't need to address his future.

He stated: "There were a lot of rumours. We all know what the reality of football is. There are moves between clubs, involving players and managers, so the rumours are always there.

"I've always maintained a calm, fluid relationship with the president and with Leonardo. Things were always clear, there was no reason to say anything more."
