Hey guys, the latest reports coming in our saying that Jorge SAMPAOLI has left to Amsterdam to meet personally with Nicolás TAGLIAFICO, a recent Ajax signing.
This wasn’t in the coach’s original plans but SAMPAOLI took it upon himself to visit the left back to most likely discuss the national team’s necesities and requirements in terms of the left back position. As we can recall, the left back was part of SAMPAOLI’S call-ups vs Brazil and Singapore. He was no longer called up after those two matches.
TAGLIAFICO still hasn’t made his official debut for Ajax, but if he manages to challenge for a starting spot on the team, SAMPAOLI will most likely consider him for the friendly matches against Italy and Spain in March.
What do you guys think? What do you guys think SAMPAOLI is thinking? Maybe as a variable to be used in various formations? I personally think TAGLIAFICO is a good option to have.
