Apologies for the late delay but it's been a hectic few days. As I'm sure you've all heard, the president of the AFA for the past 35 years, Julio GRONDONA, has passed away.
GRONDONA was taken to the hospital on Wednesday with cardiac problems shortly before he passed away. First round league matches have been suspended. Alejandro SABELLA's press conference which was supposed to be held last night was also postponed.
This throws a huge wrench in South America. Expect a big power struggle not only within the AFA but also with CONMEBOL as GRONDONA had a lot of power wherever he went.
No one knows what this means for the future coach of the National Team. Under GRONDONA, if you were coach, you sort of knew what to expect in terms of limitations and what you were and weren't allwoed to do. But under the new president (elections will be held in 90 days if I'm not mistaken), no one will know what to expect.
This will very much likely delay the announcement of the new Argentina manager.
