AFA president Claudio TAPIA has stated that Lionel SCALONI might have a chance to remain as coach of the Argentina national team.
The AFA president was speaking on TyC Sports and praised coach Lionel SCALONI. He stated that SCALONI could stay on as Argentina coach. Here’s what he had to say:
“When the cycle started, the chance didn’t exist. But the people ended up identifying with this Argentina national team and it could be decided that they (Lionel SCALONI’s coaching staff) could have a chance. We all want the best for Argentina and if this process continues to grow, we have to take advantage of it.
“I’m happy with SCALONI’s work. It wouldn’t be crazy for him to coach at the Copa America. We don’t have to go crazy, we know what our objectives are and the closest thing is the Copa America. It wouldn’t be crazy if he were to coach.
“In the matches which SCALONI coached, we saw two different teams and both teams played well and had chances. Against Brazil, maybe a little less but truthfully, they played well. I saw it, I saw the way he came to work and no doubt he’s a coach to respect. The attitude shown by these players reflect what is being identified with this coach. The good things have to be mentioned.”
