Jorge Sampaoli Replaces Edgardo Bauza As Argentina's Manager

Former Sevilla Boss Jorge Sampaoli is officially named Argentina's new Manager replacing   Edgardo Bauza, signing a five year deal on Thursday evening at the Argentina Football Association (AFA) headquarters in Ezeiza, Buenos Aires.

Jorge Sampaoli had been heavily linked with the Vacant Argentina's Managerial position since Edgardo Bauza got dismissed in April 10th and still had one year left in his contract with the club and on Thursday evening the club confirmed that his €1.5 million release clause had been paid.

"This is a dream come true, one that I had desired for some time. I always admired this place," Sampaoli said at his unveiling. "I thank the [AFA] president [Claudio Tapia] for his patience.

"The contract is through to the 2022 World Cup. I hope we can do something important for Argentine people."

"We have to build a team that respects the history of Argentine football," the 57-year-old Sampaoli said. "There are more than 100 players being monitored. What we want is for those players that wear this jersey to expose the quality they have.

"I'm surrounded by very capable people. This national team is not of a group of players but of 40 million Argentines. We need to have a starring role."
