Lionel Scaloni Asked to Stay as Argentina Manager

Recommended Posts

Argentina have asked interim coach Lionel Scaloni to stay in charge of the team until next year's Copa America, the head of the Argentine Football Association (AFA) has confirmed.

Scaloni, who was appointed to succeed Jorge Sampaoli after a disappointing World Cup in Russia where the South Americans won only one game and were knocked out in last 16 by France, has not formally responded to the offer but is expected to accept.

"We've seen Scaloni's work and as a result we are offering him the chance to continue until the Copa America," AFA president Claudio Tapia told reporters.

"The project is evolving and the national team is gaining an identity and that's what we want."

He's had the balls to drop the likes of Aguero, DiMaria, Banega, Biglia, Higuain, and every other player who's failed at the National side for a few years. 

They love him for that.
