Sacked Argentina manager, Edgardo Bauza believes Argentina will qualify for the world cup, as he said his goodbyes.
Bauza was sacked after less than a year on the job, after taking over Gerard Martino. He only won three out of eight games he managed.
Argentina currently sit outside of the CONMEBOL automatic qualification for the world cup, as they are one point behind fourth placed Chile.
“I am grateful to the players because they are responsible for this option that Argentina can go to the World Cup,” Bauza said.
“I do not want to forget about them, I want to thank them, not everyone values the sacrifice made by these players.
“A generation, beyond having lost three finals, gives everything for the national team.
“I am convinced that Argentina will be in the World Cup.”
Bauza added: “It was a wonderful experience for me and all my coaching staff. There are many people to thank for the opportunity.
“We tried to do it in the best way, there were some inconveniences at the beginning but we were improving, especially the communication with the players despite the short time of work.
“There were good results and others not so much.”
