Sevilla Coach SampaoliAdmits Argentina Offer Would Be Hard to Turn down

Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli has finally admitted that he cannot turn down the opportunity to coach the Argentina national team if such an offer comes along.


Argentina are without a manager after recently sacking Edgardo Bauza. The national team has been going through a poor patch of form under the regime of Bauza so much so that their appearance in the World Cup 2018 has been put under a cloud of doubt. The national team are just outside the automatic qualification spots. As it stands, the 1986 World Cup winners will have to go to a play-off in order to reach the final of the competition in Russia.

Edgardo Bauza Confident of Argentina Reaching World Cup 2018

Argentina have parted company with manager Edgardo Bauza after a string of poor results that left the national team in serious jeopardy when it comes to qualifying for the World Cup 2018.


The 2-0 defeat against Bolivia has left to the national team in the fifth spot in the South American qualification group. Only the top four teams will be able to reach the World Cup automatically, while the fifth placed team will have got to a play-off, which might actually be tougher than expected after the recent changes to the format. Argentina are only one point behind Chile, who occupy the final fourth spot, but there is a serious danger of missing out on World Cup 2018.
