Lothar Matthaus: Content being a TV pund

Lothar Matthaus has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Nurnberg job, insisting he is happy in his role as a television pundit.

The Bavarians are searching for a replacement for Michael Wiesinger, who was dismissed earlier this week, and Matthaus' name had been mentioned as a potential candidate.

However, the Sky analyst, whose last coaching role with Bulgaria's national team ended in 2011, says he is not currently interested in what would be his first job in the Bundesliga.

"I've not met with anybody from FC Nurnberg," he told the Express newspaper. "That's all pure speculation again.

"I'm totally happy with my life as it is right now, even without a coaching job."

The 52-year-old has previously made no secret of his desire to coach in the Bundesliga one day having spent all of his coaching career abroad.

He led Rapid Vienna to their worst ever league finish in 2002 before coaching Partizan Belgrade, Hungary, Red Bull Salzburg and Maccabi Netanya, all without repeating the success of his playing career.

Former Stuttgart coach Christian Gross has emerged as the favourite for the Nurnberg job, with the club confirming on Wednesday that he was among the candidates.
