The slide of lice as he is known in Argentina Jorge Sampaoli breaks the silence he had after Argentina was eliminated in the World Cup by the hands of France. The former technical director of Argentina had the approval of 96% of the Argentine population to reach the position he has, today the approval is only 5% plus millions of insults that poor Jorge has suffered.
The former Spanish Sevilla coach was sincere in answering questions that all soccer fans had:
Do you have the feeling that you stopped being a coach at some point during the World Cup?
Many times I had to get close to many players for them to enjoy … I do not know, I think we prepared the World Cup very well, but then the Cup itself was not so good. Each match was almost a suffering.
Do you regret something?
I believe that all of us who were there were honest in the contribution. And I also. I put a lot of heart and feeling, but it did not reach. I do not think I have to reproach myself with things. In adversity, I learned a lot for the future.
Is it difficult to train Messi?
Having the best in the world in your team forces you to a maximum demand. And the rest must be at his height. But sometimes you can, and sometimes you can not. And in that fight, we were every day. Having Leo forces you to have no margin for error when it comes to winning.
The interview left epic phrases to analyze as:
“In Argentina, there is a lot of madness: if you do not ‘win’, ‘you are a loser’
“Having Leo forces you to have no margin of error when it comes to winning”
“I do not think I have to reproach myself for things”
Argentina will face Iraq in a friendly match and then Brazil with players who were not starters in the World Cup, to try to get the course without Messi and that the team will return to unite the country in a single song of support and not criticism.
