“You’ll have to ask the reporter to reveal his source to see who it is,” Martino said. “I don’t even know it.”
Martino doesn’t have an agent. He has been speculatively tied to several managerial positions with national teams, including the U.S., Colombia, Mexico and his native Argentina, which he managed from 2014-16.
Martino led Atlanta United to the playoffs in its inaugural season last year. This season, the Five Stripes have 60 points, three of which came in Wednesday’s thrilling 4-3 win against the San Jose Earthquakes. Atlanta United leads MLS in points and is the favorite to win the Supporters’ Shield and MLS Cup.
An Atlanta United spokeswoman declined to provide details of the proposal given to Martino.
“I don’t want to take anything away from the team because we have a lot of things to play for this year and we are focused on that,” he said.
