Jorge Sampaoli will be announced as the new manager of the Argentina national team on May 22, reports AS.
The Argentine Football Association (AFA) relieved Edgardo Bauza of his duties as manager earlier this month and Sampaoli is the man they want to replace him.
Sampaoli is currently in charge of Sevilla, but AS reports that the LaLiga club’s president Pepe Castro is already aware that the Argentinian will leave to take charge of his national team.
Speaking about the speculation at a press conference, Sampaoli said: “I know that there is interest and I know that it is said that I am the chosen [one], but they will have to wait for the times that correspond to not harm anyone. Doing it now would harm Sevilla.
