Tottenham assistant manager Gus Poyet has rubbished reports he is ready to join Manchester United as Sir Alex Ferguson's number two.
Ferguson is looking for a new assistant after Carlos Queiroz took charge of Portugal and former Chelsea midfielder Poyet has been linked with the position.
But the Uruguayan, who was a coach at Swindon and Leeds before becoming assistant to Juande Ramos at Spurs, has no intention of leaving the League Cup winners.
“It's nothing. It was a surprise to read it,” he told Tottenham's website.
“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!”
