Mauricio Pochettino says he is “so happy” at Paris St-Germain and will not be distracted by reports he is open to taking over at Manchester United.

Argentine Pochettino, who managed Tottenham from 2014 to 2019, is highly regarded at Old Trafford.

“The rumours are there, but this type of thing cannot distract me,” he said.

“I am so happy at Paris St-Germain and I am so focused.”

After Pochettino took charge of PSG in January, they finished second in Ligue 1 and were beaten in the Champions League semi-finals by Manchester City.

However, they also won the French Cup and the Trophee des Champions, which was the first trophy of Pochettino’s managerial career.

They are currently top of Ligue 1, 11 points clear of second-placed Nice after 14 games, and face City, who are one point ahead of them in Group A, in the Champions League on Wednesday.

“I love the club, I love the fans – it is a fantastic time to be at the club,” said Pochettino, who spent two years at PSG as a player.

“My contract is to 2023 – this season and one more.

“I am really happy at Paris St Germain – that is a fact.”
