Jorge SAMPAOLI: “I’m leaving Sevilla for my National Team”


The never ending rumors involving Jorge SAMPAOLI and the Argentina National Team have finally come to an end.

Ahead of the last La Liga weekend of the season, Sevilla coach Jorge SAMPAOLI has addressed it all concerning his time with Sevilla and him joining the Argentina National Team. Speaking to the media, the Copa America winner had this to say:

Jorge SAMPAOLI’s comments:

“I feel like I have to go. Based on the needs of my country, I have to be there. I’m not leaving Sevilla for another club. If it all happens, I’m leaving Sevilla for my National Team. The chance to coach my National Team has once again resurfaced and I can’t turn it down.”

“To give the list (Argentina squad), I have to have Sevilla’s authorization.”

It’s also being reported that Sevilla have accepted that the AFA pay them SAMPAOLI’s €1.5 million release clause.


  1. The List of Sampaoli is in..
    Arqueros: Sergio Romero, Nahuel Guzmán, Gerónimo Rulli

    Defensores: Javier Mascherano, Gabriel Mercado, Nicolás Otamendi, Emanuel Mammana.

    Volantes: Lucas Biglia, Alejandro Gómez, Ever Banega, Eduardo Salvio, Manuel Lanzini, Leandro Paredes, Guido Rodríguez.

    Delanteros: Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala, Mauro Icardi, Gonzalo Higuaín, Joaquín Correa y Angel Di María.

  3. This is great news. It’s what we wanted.
    There is no time for him to dick around.
    He’s got to start now with selection, game plan and bring back our footballing ethos. I fear it could all go pete-tong for him and us fickle fans are not forgiving. But he is the right direction?
    He needs to be bold with his selection and drop the seemingly impossible to drop players. As much as I hate to say it that would include Mascherano.
    Biglia, Aguero are dead weight for me. They can go do one.
    Peredez, Ascicabar (once he returns from u20s), Perotti and Icardi should be a shoe in for the qualifiers.
    Gonzalo is like a cat for me with all those lives that he gets….i can’t help but find myself giving him chance after chance. If Sampaoli has the balls to not selecting Higuain for the final cut, I wouldn’t be upset.

    But this has to be the light at the end we were hoping for?
    So why am I feeling so uneasy?

  4. This is a new era for Argentina and I hope we will see a team that is similar or stronger than the one of Jose Pekerman at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. I have been a big fan of Argentina football for a long time, and Sampaoli’s appointment is a great news for all Argentina fans around the world.

  5. Best news for me in 2017 so far.

    And we are already hearing changes in team and we are still in 5th position. This is a difference between Bauza and Sampaoli or Tite. Good managers don’t wait. They have a clear vision. Especially if they are taking a team that is in trouble. If someone takes Brazil now, they don’t have to make wholesale changes.

  6. This is the best news in a long, long time.
    Looking forward to see Dybala and Messi in a Sampaoli coached team. On paper the prospects are mouth-watering 🙂
