Poch reaffirms Spurs commitment

Cape Town - Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has distanced himself from the Argentina national team job while also revealing imminent departures of three squad players.

Pochettino has been named as a front-runner for the Argentina job since the resignation of Gerardo Martino.

However, the former Southampton manager says it's just paper talk as it would be natural for them to be interested in an Argentine who led a Premier League club to a third placed finish.

"I think the speculation is normal because I am an Argentinean coach at a top club in England," he told reporters.

"There are a lot of rumours that appear in the media but I am happy at Tottenham and for that reason, this is not the right moment."

The 44-year old, who is currently with Spurs on a pre-season tour in Australia went on to mention that three players who were used sparingly last season are free to leave the club this summer.

"The situation of other three players - Bentaleb, Fazio and Pritchard - is very clear. They are not in my plans and they know. I have communicated with them and it was made very clear. It's not a problem," he explained.

"They know the situation and we'll see what happens."
