AFA president Claudio TAPIA has stated that Jorge SAMPAOLI is the Argentina coach.
It’s been an ongoing debate since Argentina’s elimination at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. There were even two meetings which were held between the AFA president and the current Argentina manager. However, TAPIA confirmed on TyC Sports that SAMPAOLI is the manager. Here’s what he had to say:
“SAMPAOLI is the Argentina coach. He has a contract.”
It’s been stated many times in the media that the AFA want SAMPAOLI out but as mentioned several times, the federation would have to pay SAMPAOLI 20 million dollars in compensation.
