Vigo, July 30: Celta de Vigo chief coach Eduardo "Toto" Berizzo has ruled out the possibility of leaving the Spanish football club to take up the post of Argentina coach, though he would meet with leaders of the Argentine Football Association if they asked.

In an appearance before the media after team training on Friday, the coach mentioned the "existing contract" with Celta and that he is committed to it, reports Efe.

The Argentine confirmed that there is a clause in his contract that allows him to leave the club if he receives an offer from the national team, but insisted that he will not exercise it.

However, he considered it a compliment that the AFA have thought of him as a possible replacement for Gerardo "Tata" Martino to train the two-time FIFA World Cup winners.
