Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly turned down an opportunity to become the new manager of West Ham United.
After a run of just one win from 10 matches in the Premier League, Manuel Pellegrini is on the brink of losing his job at the London Stadium.
With a 12-day break to follow Saturday's game at Southampton, the Hammers board are seemingly sounding out potential replacements for the Chilean.
However, despite a natural interest in Pochettino, The Mirror claims that West Ham have failed to tempt the former Tottenham Hotspur boss into a quick return to the dugout.
While Pochettino has recently suggested that he is open to taking on a new role as soon as possible, the report suggests that the Argentine will sit out the remainder of the campaign.body check tags ::
