Jorge Sampaoli Sevilla coach wants Argentina job

"It's an opportunity that I turned down when I took over at Sevilla in pre-season, but is still there", Sampaoli said at a news conference, as posted in Sevilla's website. "My country has the clear intention of offering me the job", Sampaoli told reporters on Friday. "I'm not leaving them for another club".

However, the 57-year-old admits "this time is different" as he waits on his club and country to thrash out an agreement. I didn't believe that this possibility of the national team could be revisited. Coaching Argentina is a dream I have since I was a child.

Bauza only took charge of eight Argentina matches before he was dismissed, as the team sat fifth in the South American qualification system for the 2018 World Cup, with only the top four spots earning an automatic place in Russian Federation. Meanwhile, Sevilla president Pepe Castro said not only will they insist on the €1.5 million buyout for Sampaoli, but he wants it in full upfront.

Atalanta forward Alejandro Gomez, West Ham attacker Manuel Lanzini, Joaquin Correa of Sevilla, Tijuana midfielder Guido Rodriguez and Roma's Leandro Paredes are among the new names included in the Argentina squad. But the president is in charge of this, there's a contract to respect and nothing has been resolved yet.

"I don't want any friction with Sevilla, whom I am grateful to".

Sampaoli has been tracked by the Argentina Football Association (AFA) for weeks, having worked wonders in a previous role in charge of the Chile national side.

Sampaoli hit out at reports in Argentina that said he had already submitted an Argentina squad list, saying the media "are trying to make people think that I've done something under the table".

But he said: "No one is going to take Sevilla's last game away from me". The country's soccer federation has not yet confirmed the hire but it is expected after his last match with Sevilla at the weekend. The day should be a party and I would not forgive myself for not leading this last game.
