Sampaoli confirms his desire to take over the Argentina job

Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli said today a firm offer to coach Argentina would be too tempting to turn down, adding negotiations between his native country and the La Liga club were well advanced.

While no deal has been agreed with the AFA, it is widely expected that Sunday's season-finale with Osasuna will be Sampoali's last in the Sevilla dug-out. There is a clear desire from my country to have me as coach and I have had a dream of taking that chance since I was very young. "My country has the clear intention of offering me the job", Sampaoli said.

Bauza only took charge of eight Argentina matches before he was dismissed, as the team sat fifth in the South American qualification system for the 2018 World Cup, with only the top four spots earning an automatic place in Russian Federation.

Sampaoli, who led Chile to the 2015 Copa America title, confirmed he will only leave Sevilla to take charge of Argentina, rather than for another club.

Also on Friday, a auto bomb south of Benghazi killed a prominent tribal leader linked to the LNA along with five other people. The UN envoy to Libya earlier on Friday voiced alarm at reports of the attack on the base, 650 kilometres south of Tripoli .


"Last summer, I couldn't leave because I had already committed myself to Sevilla and built the squad alongside [former sporting director] Monchi".

"This situation is something that is getting resolved now, not earlier, because we had a lot to play for". In the meantime, Sampaoli has Sevilla's final match of the season to manage, and it could be his final match on the Sevilla bench. There is still no agreement between the Argentinean football federation and Sevilla but I feel like I need to go.

"There's one game left and it's as important as the first", he said, according to Sevilla's website. But it only won three of the next 12 matches and is likely to finish in fourth place, good enough for a playoff for the Champions League. "Our goal was to exceed 70 points (Sevilla have 69) and we are looking forward to trying to do that", he told the club's official website. For me, to assess ourselves on a personal level and as a group, we've spent a year competing at the top among the best teams in La Liga.
