Graham Arnold says he is ignoring all the rumours about his future and is focused on the final World Cup qualifying group game against Saudi Arabia.
The Socceroos are priced at 500/1 to win the 2022 World Cup but will need to go through the play-offs if they are to make the finals in Qatar.
Following the 2-0 defeat against Japan last week the game against Saudi Arabia is now a dead-rubber but there is talk that Arnold could be sacked after the game.
That would mean a new man coming in to lead the team for the two play-off games in the hope a fresh voice would help seal qualification.
Despite such talk Arnold says he is focused on the game and does not listen to what is being said and written about him.
"I don't read what you guys write and I don't do any social media, I block out all the external noise and just focus on the players because that's what I'm here for," he said.
"This is always part of the job. I understand with coaching and the trade that I'm in, this is the way it works at times.
"But I know I've given my best and I'm giving my best to help these players."
Arnold will use the game to put Bruno Fornaroli in from the start and the Perth Glory striker has a big chance to shine.
"It's a good chance to see if Bruno - against a World Cup opponent - is ready," he said.
"Bruno has brought a lot of energy to the camp, he's such a fantastic guy and I think he showed in that little time he was on the field against Japan, he gives us something in a different way of a number nine. I'll be keen to see how he goes."
