Russia 2018: Guardiola May Replace Sampaoli As Argentina Coach
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola may be the replacement for Jorge Sampaoli as coach of Argentina national team.
There was crisis at the camp of the Argentine squad after their 3-0 loss to Croatia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Sampaoli was almost dropped as coach before the game against Nigeria as old players including Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano were not happy with the coach's tactics.
But the issue was managed and Argentina went on to beat the Super Eagles 2-1 and qualify for the Round of 16.
That was the farthest they could get in Russia as they were ousted by France, and now the Argentina FA is considering bringing Guardiola to manage the team.
Reports in England says AFA are willing to pay Pep $12m a year until 2022.
It is believed that the Catalan has a good relationship with Messi and confessed to Aguero he'd be interested in managing the team, despite feeling an Argentine should be in charge.
