Sampaoli heading for Sevilla exit

Sampaoli heading for Sevilla exit

Both have caught the eye of Jorge Sampaoli, the Sevilla coach set to take the vacant Argentina job after the Spanish Liga season ends this weekend and likely to dramatically change the team's tactics.

According to several reports in Spain, either Ernesto Valverde or Eduardo Berizzo could replace Sampaoli at Sevilla but what's for sure is that the Argentinean won't be the manager of Barcelona next season.

Sampaoli continued: "I can not get into contract issues".

Argentina, who have struggled in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and are fifth in the South American group, have four matches left to make sure they reach the Russian Federation finals. I didn't leave last summer because I had to lead the new squad that I built with Monchi.

"My contract with the club contains clauses which allow me to leave", said Argentine Sampaoli. They have been horribly run and it reached the point that Lionel Messi was paying team security last season.

The South American heavyweights sit fifth in their group and, with just four matches left to play, are in danger of missing out on a place in Russian Federation.

Part of Argentina's malaise is thanks to Sampaoli.

Mauro Icardi has been banging on Argentina door since earning a first cap in World Cup qualifier in 2013.

"Every human being has a dream and mine is to coach the national team of my country", he said.

Sampaoli has been in charge of Sevilla for less than a year and has received much praise for the work that he has done, with the club in fourth place in La Liga. "I feel I must go".

"I was very clear with the President and the club's people".

But he said: "No one is going to take Sevilla's last game away from me". The opportunity to guide the national team has come along again and, as an Argentinian, I can not turn it down.

However, Sampaoli denied media reports that he had already named a national team squad for next month's global friendlies. That will be done after this match against Osasuna, I want to be at [Sunday's game] because we have won the league that we had to win behind the big three (Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid).
