Argentina Could Sack Coach Jorge Sampaoli Before Nigeria Game


Reports monitored from Argentina by the editorial team of has it that Argentina could line up against Nigeria on Tuesday without their coach Jorge Sampaoli who could get the axe after yesterday’s 0-3 defeat against Croatia.


Argentina are facing the possibility of a shock exit from the World Cup with just one point from their opening two games, and as expected the job of the coach is seriously under threat.

The possibility of sacking the coach has dominated the headlines in Argentina with talks of former striker Jorge Burruchaga handling them as caretaker coach in their final group game against Nigeria.

Sampaoli during the post match conference after their loss against Croatia faulted his players saying they are yet to adapt to his methods and demands and it played a huge role in their loss.

His call for togetherness ahead of the Nigerian game appears to have fallen on deaf ears as the Football Federation of Argentina is expected ‎to communicate the latest concerning the future of the coach later today.
