Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is ignoring speculation linking him with the manager’s job at Manchester United.
Reports emerged in Germany over the past week suggesting the 44-year-old has been identified as a future successor to Jose Mourinho by the Red Devils’ hierarchy.
However, the former Porto coach has no desire to encourage the rumours by discussing them in public.
“You know me. I don’t talk about that. It does not make sense,” he told a news conference when asked if he was flattered by the talk.
“This is not the moment to even think about it. I don’t think about it, I totally ignore that, I totally ignore it.”
When pressed on whether he would aspire to manage a club like United one day, Nuno replied: “I don’t do like that. I go on a daily basis.
“I know what I have to do tomorrow [Saturday]: to prepare the boys well and prepare the team for a tough game against Burnley. This is the way I look at the future. I take it day by day.”
The Portuguese manager took charge of the club took charge of Wolves in May 2017, signing a three-year deal.
He then led the club to a spot in the Premier League, achieving promotion with four matches to spare in the Championship season.
