Jorge Sampaoli unaware of Meeting with bosses of Argentina Football

Jorge Sampaoli doesn’t have any idea about the meeting that his representative is said to have held with the bosses of Argentina Football about the possibility of him taking up the job of the Albiceleste head coach.

Sampaoli says that he personally hasn’t had any interaction with the national Federation with regard to a job opportunity and he still has the same stand that he had on Friday.

The 57-year old had stated on Friday that his mind was not getting deviated because of being linked to the Argentina job and he was fully concentrated on making sure that Sevilla had a good finish in the Spanish top flight.

As per Sampaoli, Sevilla showed faith in his abilities and placed him at the post of the manager. So, he can’t let his mind drift away anywhere else till the time he is in charge of Sevilla.

Sampaoli has, however, not clearly denied Sevilla exit and it is believed that he is interested in coaching his country’s team, but, he doesn’t want to give away too much with his statements at the moment and clearly wants to be done with the season first.

There will be no big hurdles in Sampaoli’s exit from Sevilla if he wishes for an exit because he had not penned the new contract when offered at the start of the year which means he will be into the final year of his current contract next summer and thus will be free to move away.

However, there is a release clause in the contract which says that for him to be taken away in the final year, one and a half million Pounds will have to be paid to Sevilla. So it will be interesting to see if Argentina pays that amount to acquire his services.
