Sevilla and Argentina Reach Agreement for Jorge Sampaoli


He said on the club's official website: "I respect the AFA but the only thing that we have on our mind is the complete clause - €1.5m is €1.5m".

Sevilla and the Argentine Football Association (AFA) have reached an agreement in principle for Jorge Sampaoli to become the new head coach of Argentina, the LaLiga club have announced.

"All parties are satisfied by the agreement that has been reached". Documents that must be signed by both parties next Thursday, June 1st.

Argentina have been without a coach since Edgardo Bauza was dismissed in April.

Now the 57-year old has a hard task ahead of him to win Argentina's remaining games and qualify automatically for the World cup.

The AFA named a squad for June friendlies against Brazil and Singapore this month that was widely felt to bear Sampaoli's prints, with Inter striker Mauro Icardi recalled as Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero missed out.

Only the top four teams to qualify automatically for Russian Federation 2018, while the fifth-placed nation will play-off against an Oceania opponent.
