Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly turned down Monaco's offer to take charge of the club after Robert Moreno was sacked.
The ex-Spurs boss has been out of work since being dismissed by Spurs in November last year and being replaced by Jose Mourinho at the helm.
Pochettino was given a route back into the dugout as Monaco's prime managerial target but he turned it down, according to The Athletic.
The Ligue 1 side's sporting director, Paul Mitchell, was reportedly hopeful of tying the Argentine boss down to a deal after previously working with him in England at Spurs and Southampton.
But the report claims that Pochettino is taking his time on picking his next managerial role.
The ex-Tottenham boss has been linked to the hotseat at both Inter Milan and Juventus recently.
Monaco have dismissed Moreno after just seven months and former Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac has been brought straight in to replace him.
The club have decided to make a change with former Tottenham recruitment chief Mitchell taking up the position of sporting director.
