Chelsea boss Pochettino: Don't ask me about Man Utd job!

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino would not be drawn into criticisms of Manchester United.

The Argentine was linked to the Old Trafford hot seat before Erik ten Hag got the job last summer.

While Pochettino is delighted at being at Stamford Bridge, he would not take a dig at United when asked to do so by reporters.

When asked if he was glad he didn't get the United job, he responded: “Again, I'm not going to talk about... you laugh but I you try to make me talk too much, I don't want to make a mistake.

“I am not the person to talk what is going on at different clubs. I am happy here in this project.

“We are dealing with many situations we need to improve also. Maybe if someone sees the project from outside maybe they thing we need advice from the outside.

“We are building something here and 200% focused on evolving and developing the project we want together. That is my focus to try and deliver the job."
