What went wrong for El Patón? Why the AFA mess made it doomed from the start, why Bauza’s decisions made it worse & why the AFA still don’t have a clear plan


From being the only man available at a tough time to a refusal to accept footballing reality with Argentina, the short reign of Edgardo Bauza was a troubled one

After only eight months and eight matches in charge the axe has finally fallen on Edgardo Bauza, bringing an end to a messy few weeks of speculation and leaving Argentina in the market for a third coach since the 2014 World Cup.

The writing has been on the wall for Bauza since last month’s unconvincing victory over Chile and his bizarre post-match comments (perhaps even earlier) but Monday’s confirmation that the 59-year-old was out came as little surprise after a World Cup qualifying campaign that has lurched to crisis, leaving La Albiceleste contemplating missing out on Russia 2018.
