Argentina and their manager Jorge Luis Sampaoli have finally part ways after “mutually” agreeing to terminate his contract following a catastrophic 2018 World Cup campaign in Russia.
The two-time World Cup winners and 2014 losing finalists crushed out of the tournament after a 4-3 defeat at the hands of France at the Round of 16.
"Today, the Argentine Football Association and the former national team coach, Jorge Sampaoli, have mutually agreed to the termination of their contract," the Argentina Football Association noted.
The 58-year-old Argentine took charge of his home country in May 2017 after leaving Chile. Physical trainer Jorge Desio and video analyst Matias Manna have also followed Sampaoli through the exit.
Argentina won the World Cup in 1978 and in 1986.
