Koch tells Voss to "focus on job at hand" following Carlton interview

Port Adelaide president David Koch is unhappy with Michael Voss interviewing for the vacant Carlton coaching role during the Power’s season.

Voss met with the Blues earlier in the week for an interview about the head coach position in the lead-up to the Power’s Round 18 clash with Richmond, which left Koch unhappy.

“You know, people go for better jobs, that’s great, but do it at the end of the season,” he told Channel 7’s Sunrise.

“Focus on the job at hand. We’re paying you at the moment, do your job.

“Show your interest (in other jobs), but hey, get focused.”

But former St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt disagrees, saying that Voss would be risking his chances of landing the position if he didn’t attend an interview with the Blues during the season.

“I think we’ve got to be mature enough to understand that these guys won’t get a job otherwise,” he told SEN Breakfast.

“If they’re not in a position where they can interview, they won’t get jobs.

“I don’t think we should be too bogged down and consumed by what it looks like.

“He’s going to do the best he can for Port Adelaide because if he’s not, you don’t think that’s going to work its way back to Carlton?”

Port Adelaide will aim to bounce back from last weekend's 48-point loss to Brisbane when they face Richmond on Saturday at the MCG.

The Power haven’t played at the MCG since Round 1, when they beat Melbourne by 26 points.
