Sevilla coach Lopetegui hints at Tottenham approach

Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui has hinted he fielded interest from Tottenham last summer.

Lopetegui was linked with Spurs before they hired Nuno.

He recalled to AS: "That is history. There were options to be able to take other paths but I am happy at Sevilla.

"Train in the Premier? One learns to live in the present and the future does not exist, God will say. I put all my passion and energy into this profession, without making more plans."

On Sevilla's title chances, Lopetegui continued: "We are in November and LaLiga is a marathon of 38 games. If we look further, it'd be wrong.

"The teams that are always on top will be again. Real Madrid, Atlético, Barcelona ... I don't have a favourite but the one with the most merits will win it."
