AFA vice president and Boca Juniors president Daniel ANGELICI has stated that he wants River Plate coach Marcelo GALLARDO to manage the Argentina National Team while admitting that it was a mistake to select Jorge SAMPAOLI.
With all the rumors circulating as to who will coach Argentina, one thing has been made clear. Claudio TAPIA wants current Atlanta United man Gerardo “Tata” MARTINO to spearhead the National Team while Daniel ANGELICI wants Marcelo GALLARDO. However, a decision will be made in December, that much both men can agree on.
Speaking with Tribuna PICANTE, here’s what the Boca president had to say:
“I have no candidate but GALLARDO is a very good coach who has won a lot of important things. I would go find him. We don’t have to rush with the coach of the Argentina National Team. It will surely be decided in December.”
And finally, in regards to former Argentina coach Jorge SAMPAOLI, ANGELICI said this:
“I was wrong with SAMPAOLI but I was very convinced.”
