Hernan Crespo: “I’d like to coach Argentina to a World Cup title”


Hernan Crespo has stated that he would one day like to coach the Argentina national team and to become a World Cup winner.

Crespo is currently managing Defensa y Justicia in Argentina but speaking in an interview with El Show de la Oral, the former striker also showed his admiration towards his former coach, Marcelo Bielsa. Speaking about coaching Argentina, here’s what he had to say:

“I dream about being the coach of the Argentina national team and to achieve something I couldn’t do as a player: To be a World Cup champion.”

Regarding Marcelo Bielsa:

“I continue to admire the way Bielsa trains his players and makes them better. It’s one of the things I try to copy in my job.”

With the Argentina national team, Crespo played in three World Cups and has also managed Modena in Italy and Banfield in Argentina.


  1. Paulo Dybala admitted it would be “very nice” to play for Barcelona as the star attacker said he was still waiting for a contract renewal at Juventus.

    Dybala, 26, was enjoying a fine season before it was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, having been linked with a move from Turin last year.

    The Argentina international is reportedly set to extend his stay at Juve, where he is contracted until 2022.

  2. With the integration of Quarta and Montiel I believe that team will be well balanced. I didn’t give Scaloni many credits because of so many changes and calls like Burgos, Suarez, Meza, Cervi, Casco but it seems that he manages to find the right players and the team is becoming more confident. I haven’t seen a well balanced Argentina for a very long time and I think this team has a lot of potentials.

  3. This is the funniest article I have read on mundo in years.
    All I have to say is, “So would I, Hernan, so would I. While we are dreaming of things we would like, I would also like to be 20 years younger, 6 inches taller, and have a few zeros added to my net worth. This is some funny sh*t.”

  4. Lol. Aguero will host Spanish lessons on BBC (counting basic numbers) soon if any of y’all are interested. Great for him. Y’all can also see him playing FIFA and its freaking hilarious how he reacts

  5. Long way to go for Crespo, I think Heinze would make a good coach for us. Anyway for now Scaloni is the one and he looks settled. He may not be having a great reputation like Simone or Pochettino. But sometimes it may help. We had tried Big name coaches like Sampaoli and it didn’t work out well, so let’s give a shoat to a fresher young guy. What worse will happen? Anyway we haven’t won anything for last 25 years so it’s worth a shoat

  6. Crespo need to bring and approved himself worthy to be N/T coach; a long way to go. Maybe coaching the European or MLS club will be more realistic. Don’t reject the offer

  7. Luka Romero, 2004 born argentine-mexican wonderkid, the dribbling style and the hair looks like young Messi’s.


    • His style reminds a lot of a young Messi. To me, this kid has the most promising potential of all Argentine youngsters. We are lucky that he has chosen the Argentina NT over Spain and Mexico. Hopefully his potential will be realized and utilized early into his career by clubs and country.
