Sampaoli Officially Named Argentina Manager

Former Chile and Sevilla boss, Jorge Sampaoli has officially been named Argentina’s new manager.

Sampaolli has put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Albiceleste and was presented on Thursday evening at the Argentina Football Association (AFA) headquarters in Ezeiza, Buenos Aires.

“This is a dream come true, one that I had desired for some time. I always admired this place,” Sampaoli said at his unveiling.

“I thank the [AFA] president [Claudio Tapia] for his patience.

“The contract is through to the 2022 World Cup. I hope we can do something important for Argentine people.”

Sampaoli replaces Edgardo Bauza, who was sacked on April 10 after eight months in chage.

Argentina have reached three straight major tournament finals under their previous managers, beginning with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and lost all three.
