Jorge SAMPAOLI will finally get his dream of coaching Argentina.
The Sevilla coach will be leaving his job in Spain to coach the Argentina National Team, reports AS. The report states that SAMPAOLI will be announced as coach of the Argentina National Team on May 22, following the end of the la liga season. SAMPAOLI has been in the spotlight and been the main man in the media to replace former coach Edgardo BAUZA but has watched his words regarding possibly joining the National Team. However, SAMPAOLI has let it slip stating the following:
“I know there is interest and they say I am the chosen one, but they will have to wait for the right time to make sure nobody is harmed. To do it now would harm Sevilla. If a player can go because of a clause, why can’t a manager do it too?”
It’s also being rumored thatt SAMPAOLI has already started working on drafting a list of names for his Argentina team and that AFA president Claudio TAPIA has informed SAMPAOLI that he would be able to work in peace while still coaching Sevilla. The situation for SAMPAOLI is that Sevilla’s seasons ends on May 22 and Argentina play two friendly matches in June. The first against Brazil on June 9 and the second on June 13 against Singapore.
An additional piece which is being rumored in the media is that Mauro ICARDI would finally get a call to the Argentina National Team. Especially should Paulo DYBALA and Gonzalo HIGUAIN take part in the Champions League final for Juventus in June.
