A report from Ole has Jorge SAMPAOLI wanting the Argentina job.
The never ending saga of the Argentina National Team coaching job just took another turn. On Thursday, a leaked Whatsapp conversation involving AFA president TAPIA was made public. In the coversation, TAPIA reportedly embarassed and was name calling current Argentina coach Edgardo BAUZA.
Ole is currently reporting that current Sevilla coach Jorge SAMPAOLI is willing to take the Argentina job under the condition that he remain as coach until the 2022 World Cup. Reportedly, the reason why TAPIA and the AFA have yet to fire Edgardo BAUZA is because they want to confirm Jorge SAMPAOLI first prior to firing BAUZA.
There are also rumors that the AFA can’t afford to fire BAUZA due to a release clause in his contract and also because they are currently being sued by Gerardo “Tata” MARTINO’s coaching staff. And also they would have to pay Jorge SAMPAOLI’s release clause at Sevilla and his salary as Argentina coach.
