Why Jorge Sampaoli is Plan A, B, C and D for Argentina


Sampaoli is the AFA’s firm favourite as there is a serious lack of plan B?

“The candidate the AFA likes most is Sampaoli,” said vice-president Daniel Angelici to the surprise of absolutely no one given that speculation this week that has varied from firm interest in the Sevilla manager to an already done deal.

The AFA have made little secret in the identity their number one target but despite Angelici stating his friendship with Sevilla president Jose Castro, it didn’t prevent the Spanish club hitting out over the pursuit of their man.

Sevilla’s anger at the very public approach and talk of a meeting in Spain with Sampaoli before even enquiring about his availability created unnecessary tension and prompted Sampaoli to deny all contact in a pre-match press conference this week.

“Meeting with the AFA? No, not at all. I wouldn’t meet anyone, not even my brother, before a game,” Sampaoli insisted.

“If you’re asking if I have already said yes to the AFA – that is not true and I can’t talk about something that isn’t real.”
