SAMPAOLI to be presented as new Argentina coach today!

Hey everyone,

Today is the day! Jorge SAMPAOLI will be presented officially as our new National team coach at approximately 6:30pm local time in Argentina today.  He will be accompanied by Claudio “Chiqui” TAPIA.  The coach has reached an agreement with AFA that will see him as the Argentina coach for the next 5 years.  Only Cesar Menotti (1974-1982), Carlos Bilardo (1982-1990) and Marcelo Bielsa (1998-1994) have had contracts that lasted more than 5 years.

SAMPAOLI wil be presented today, and tomorrow he will depart Argentina for Melbourne, Australia at approximately 7:50am local time.  In Australia he will make his debut as the new Argentina coach in a friendly match vs. Brazil. His staff includes Juan Manuel Lillo (2nd in command coach); Jorge Desio (physical trainer); Lionel Scaloni, Matías Manna, Martín Tocalli & Íñigo Domínguez (helpers); Javier García (goalkeeper coach); Sergio Domínguez & Moisés del Hoyo (helpers in physical preparation); also Jesús Olivera (video analyst).

Hopefully this is the start of good things to come!

VAMOS ARGENTINA!!

    What a disappointing performances from both Argentine!! Higuain definitely not a NT call …

      I kinda agree, but that whole team fell apart as soon as the 2nd half started. Expected a lot more from Dybala, but he was well covered and alone, as was Higuaín…but..and Mansuckcakes didn’t do much apart from the goal. The team sacrifies a good midfielder to focus on defense seems like…

    I’m so excited….I’m still in shock and can’t believe that Sampaoli accepted the job despite two obstacles: lower pay than what he could get in any European club and our critical world cup qualifying situation. It’s a privilege to have him as a coach, probably the best coach we get since Sabella’s departure. Even if we don’t qualify, Sampaoli should be kept to build for the future. I have no complaint so far on any of his selection for Brazil’s game……I would give him 10 out 10 player selection. Higuaín though should be sacked, that’s all I can ask for in order to give his spot for the younger generation.
    Sampaoli plus Messi equals magic mixed with a dream combo. If we qualify, just qualify…..watch out for Argentina this time around.

    Jorge SAMPAOLI: “This is a dream I’ve had for a long time”

    Jorge SAMPAOLI has officially been presented as the new coach of the Argentina National Team.

    SAMPAOLI was presented along with his coaching staff at a press conference. AFA president TAPIA was also present when announcing SAMPAOLI as the new coach of Argentina. At the press conference, here’a what SAMPAOLI had to say:

    “This is a dream I’ve had for a long time. We have to build a team that respects the history of Argentinian football. There are more than 100 players being watched.”

    “There were situations where we haf to wait. I thank the president (TAPIA) for his patience. The difficulties of the World Cup Qualifiers is real. Argentina has the resources to qualify. This National Team is not one of only football players but of 40 million Argentinians.”

    “The contract is until 2022. Hopefully we can build something important for Argentinian football.”

    “The important thing is that MESSI is surrounded by compatible players. I spoke to him yesterday and he’s very excited. Mauro ICARDI’s inclusion is due to his form with his club. Football is felt and lived. It’s not studied.”

    “I dream of being at the World Cup and putting together a team to go as far as possible. I’ve always had an Argentina shirt at home. For me, it’s vital.”

    “For MASCHERANO, we called him up with the intention to play him as a central defender like at Barcelona. When we will be with the players, we will evaluate to see who is best fit to play against Brazil. We have to think about three or four systems but the important thing is how it functions against a team like Brazil.”

    “A proper analysis of the youth system has to be done.”

    There was also a mention by SAMPAOLI that there would be a local based team put together and they would try to organize a match in July.

    Sampaoli is the most high-profile manager in international level.His tenure at Sevila only proved that Chile was not some coincidence.I still remember how he dominated possession while limiting our chance for counter attacks.

    The presentation has ended . can someone summarize in english what sampaoli said in details

    1. EnganChe

      I watched just a bit, the streaming was bad on my end, somebody asked about Mascherano’s position and he said his idea is to have him play in the same position as in Barcelona, i.e. as a centre-back. He was also asked why the candidates for #5 position are people like Banega or Paredes and not defensively minded players and he said something to the effect of how crucial it is to exercise control in the middle of the park and have possession.

  8. patrico

    Comment…where can i watch this presentation

  9. Mafioso

    Matias Manna, Martin Tocalli are also exciting names.

  10. Mafioso

    Juan Manuel Lillo is also experienced manager himself.He led real sociedad to 6th position in La Liga,saved Almeria from relegation.Also managed la liga side Zaragoza and Tenerife in early 2000.Now we even have a good assistant manager.

    1. Istiaque

      Lillo isnt in the coaching staff. Sebastian Becacecce is the assistant.

      1. fanOFargentina

        Yes thats what I knew, Lillo will not be there and Sebastian Becacecce will be the assistant coach.

      2. miskan

        Baceccec will be coach of under 20…so far i know

  11. Debasish Duttaroy

    Finally, step by step it is coming together. We do not know the outcome and don’t know what future will have with us, but its a step to do things rightly. A proper coach, a team with right balance on paper. Its not someone who has no idea about anything and not an assembly for friends. Its an attempt to take things seriously. Bring it on!!!

    Roy/Moderators would like to see a detailed write up on the presentation. Will be really appreciated.

  12. Arjunanmessi
