Germany national team manager Joachim Low has denied any interest in filling the new vacancy at Real Madrid.

The 52-year-old then took over at PSG and although he delivered domestic domination in France he was unable to make a mark in the Champions League, and left the club in 2016 to be replaced by now Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

Asked about that possibility ahead of his country's World Cup 2018 warm-up friendly against Austria on Saturday, the 58-year-old said he had no interest at all in the job and was exclusively focused on preparing for his side's defence of their World Cup trophy in Russian Federation over the coming weeks.

The former Argentina defender told El Confidencial that you could not just ignore a call from the La Liga giants, however the situation "does not depend on me" and he was happy at Tottenham.
