Chiqui TAPIA on new Argentina coach: “SAMPAOLI? Could be him”


The AFA president has come out hinting at who could be the new coach of the Argentina National Team.

Since the vacancy of the Argentina coaching position after Edgardo BAUZA was let go, rumors have been circulating that current Sevilla coach Jorge SAMPAOLI would be the one to take the reins. While nothing has been announced, AFA president Chiqui TAPIA has hinted that the Copa America winning coach could be the one to coach the team.

In an interview with AS, TAPIA had this to say regarding the new Argentina coach:

“In the last few days of May we’ll announce the coach of the National Team. SAMPAOLI? Could be him.”

As we reported last week , Jorge SAMPAOLI is expected to be announced as the new coach on May 22, which falls into what TAPIA stated.


  1. Good. Aligns with my thoughts and what I shared earlier.

    1. Sevilla does not like the noise. They complained about it.
    2. There is no game until June. Its not that if it is announced today Sampaoli will start having training sessions with NT players. I am sure he and his team is already working in the background.
    3. Sevilla must focus in last 5 games, qualify for CL and then all will be happy.

    I think its a done deal.
