Sevilla publish Sampaoli interest warning

Jorge Sampaoli to take charge of Sevilla

Sevilla published an official statement regarding the rumors of their manager Jorge Sampaoli being close on heading Argentina national team.

It has been previously reported that Argentina Football Association (AFA) will be meeting with the coach to discuss terms of a possible contract.

“In response to various reports in local and international media outlets about the potential interest of the Argentine football association (AFA) to sign Jorge Sampaoli – who has a contract with Sevilla until 30 June 2018 – and in the wake of quotes attributed to AFA president Claudio Tapia that he intends to meet with Sampaoli in the upcoming days, Sevilla have sent a letter to AFA to make it clear the club would consider it a lack of respect if there is any truth in those reports, while stressing any meeting or contact with the intention of convincing Sampaoli to end his contract with this club would be unacceptable and that the club will not hesitate to take action,” the official statement reads.

Edgardo Bauza has been dismissed as Argentina national team head coach on Tuesday, and AFA immediately started the search for new manager.
