Pochettino resisting Nice interest as he targets big three leagues

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is resisting interest from Nice.

Pochettino was sacked by Paris Saint-Germain in July after leading the Qatari-owned club to the Ligue 1 title, and was replaced by Christophe Galtier.

PSG's Ligue 1 rivals Nice are considering an approach to Pochettino as a replacement for Lucien Favre, who is at risk of the sack after just two wins from their opening eight games of the season.

But the Argentine has not spoken to Nice, who are owned by British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and is reluctant to continue working in Ligue 1, says the London Evening Standard.

The 50-year-old, who has also managed Espanyol and Southampton, is instead targeting a top job back in England or Spain, or in Italy's top-flight.
