Tottenham's Poyet rubbishes move to Man Utd

July 15, 2008

Tottenham first team coach Gus Poyet today rubbished reports linking him with a move to Manchester United.

Poyet has been identified as a possible successor to Carlos Queiroz, who has left Old Trafford to become Portugal boss.

Sir Alex Ferguson has begun searching for a new number two but Poyet insists he is content at Spurs.

'The story is nothing - it was a surprise to read it,' he said.

'I want to stay at Spurs, I want to stay with this manager, this group of players and this club because I'm very happy.

'When you are in England and you are lucky enough to be with one of the big teams you are always going to get speculation.

'It happens, that's football - I've been around long enough to ignore it!'
