Report: SAMPAOLI to take Argentina job

Jorge Sampaoli

According to Juan Pablo VARSKY, there’s a high chance that Jorge SAMPAOLI will coach the Argentina National Team.

There’s a 95% chance that SAMPAOLI will coach Argentina on a part time basis, according to VARSKY. At first, it would be part time and once the AFA is able to pay out his entire clause, he would fully take over.

    I’ve got to say, the standard of reporting on this case, by supposedly reliable Argentine journalists, has been awful.

    From it being said that Bielsa was desperate to take the job, to it being 95% certain that Sampaoli would be the new coach, I’m finding it hard to believe a word they say now.

  2. San Isidro

    These posts are becoming more and more trash…Lets report news when its news….and no, this isn’t happening as Sevilla said no f’ing way.

  3. Gonzalo

    Werner in Atletico.

  4. Gonzalo

    Today Argentina play with Quatar in COTIF.

  5. Gonzalo

    Lanzini is out of Olimpic Games. Pavon or Benitez in his place.

    Vietto to Sevilla?

    1. Mafioso

      I prefer Benitez

      1. Gonzalo

        Me too. Pavon is simile to Espinoza although better. But we need a bit different player and on the left wing.

        1. Mafioso

          Benitez can score goal from any angle,confident.

          1. Gonzalo

            True. When in form it’s pleasure to watch him. More than Pavon.

    2. saant

      Pavon Has Been Confirmed For Rio.
      Vietto has signed one year loan deal with Sevilla. After all the drama. Barca apparently are keen to add Gameiro, though Atletico are keen on him too. Simeone pushed through Vietto ‘ s move to Sevilla so he can get Gameiro.
      For Calleri, this Olympics is a huge tournament. Remember, now he is without a club. A good tournament means a move to a decent team in Europe.

    According to Varsky,other 5% probability is for Berizzo.Who would u choose?Berizzo or Sampaoli?

      1. Mafioso

        I would go too with Sampaoli.Simply more experienced,1 WC and 1 Copa.Tactically also fine.He will command more respect from players,no doubt.

        I liked Berizzo’s football,almost same as Sampaoli’s.Celta started their season brilliantly but then started dropping mostly due to fatigue.

  7. Mafioso

    football-espana: Celta Vigo’s Eduardo Berizzo was contacted and told the AFA to approach Celta first.

    Jack oh shit really

  9. El pibe Erik lozano

    Gonzalo do you have more information about are u20 team…i know we won 3-0 but do you know who scored

    1. Jack!

      Argentina did indeed win 3-0 but it was due to forfeit. Morocco refused to play when the wrong flag was shown as the Moroccan.

      1. pablo dennison

        thats a classic.

  10. Toby Millard

    Sorry to be so negative, but I just don’t buy this.

    I’m already resigned to it being Russo.

  11. pablo dennison

    my guess is the afa are using a dart board to decide who todays manager will be as for tomorrow…who knows…

  12. Richard

    Impossible job. How can he focus on improving his Sevilla players and at the same time scan possible players for the NT in Argentina and Europe?

    1. Mafioso

      How did previous coaches performed with their unlimited scanning time?I mean their player selection was not that good.

      1. Richard

        Some good, some bad.
        Bringing in someone like Basanta is a good example. How do you pick a player in Mexico when hard at work in Sevilla?
        Augusto Fernandez another example.

  13. Dfox1942

    He should have been hired as soon as he left Chile.

  14. EnganChe

    Sampaoli would be a great choice…if we had him full-time. Besides, Sevilla, a club playing in the Champions League are really going to allow this? That would be very odd indeed.

  15. Sabellista

    This good news, if true. Sampaoli my preferred choice if he’s available. Bielsa second. But too many names being thrown around at the moment. Sampaoli, Gallardo, Berrizo or Bielsa can adapt to modern tactics like did Sabella.

  16. Dfox1942

    My head is spinning from all the reports, HIRE A COACH ALREADY!!!!

  17. Gonzalo

    Don’t forget today 23:15 Eureopean time Argentina U-20 plays first game in COTIF tournament. Against Marocco. We have Vadala (Juventus), Conechny (San Lorenzo) and Aguero brother, Del Castillo (Independiente) among others.

    1. saant

      Preparation already for next year’s U 20 WC n the qualifiers later this year. I believe it is made up of entirely juveniles or reserve team players. I am sure there are more experienced players at this level (1997 n later born), but the clubs wouldn’t allow them. For instance Ascacibar would be part of the U 20 set after his Olympics commitment.

      1. Gonzalo

        unfortunatele there’s no stream for the game

  18. msi75

    Conflicting reports… Sevilla communicated they have yet to hear from AFA. I have the impression Varsky’s source was a little… too fast.

  19. Ghostdeini

    Sampaoli(correct spelling because I always wrote Sampioli :P) is a question mark for me! I am reserved on his persona. I don’t know what to think of him, neither for or against him, but considering the possible candidates –> BRING HIM ON!
    Still think Bielsa will be the coach!

    1. Istiaque

      At this moment I really don’t know whats happening.

      “At first, it would be part time and once the AFA is able to pay out his entire clause, he would fully take over”. – Why would Sevilla agree to that? It means their manager could leave anytime, which is totally unhealthy for a club! Also Sevilla’s sporting director is Monchi, who is one of the most intelligent sporting directors around. I don’t know man…this particular rumor seems totally BS to me.

  20. petro

    It is best Sampaoli sticks to Sevilla or AFA..either one…Else he has to manage two headaches..

    Whats the news on Bielsa..looks like messi prefers Bielsa..

  21. Chainsaw

    That is kinda odd. Hope this part time thing doesn’t affect the team and performances.

  22. guled

    Best news of the day. I always knew sampaoli wanted to coach argentina more then others but this is still unlikely because seville will likely refuse him to do both jobs.let us see if he can force their hands.
