Mauricio Pochettino refused to lead AS Monaco before Niko Kovac

The new AS Monaco head coach Niko Kovacs has not been a priority option for the club following the firing of Robert Moreno, The Athletic claims.

He hoped to make Pochettino his first significant invitation to the club, but he refused.
