Sevilla manager Jorge Sampaoli, has rebuffed interest from the Argentinean Football Association (AFA) to take over the Albiceleste and vowed to stay at Sevilla.

Real Madrid

“I had a call from the president of the AFA, which filled me with pride, but dreams do not always come along at the right moment. Right now my dream is to win with Sevilla. I’d love to coach the Argentina national team, I’ve always said that, but it would be irresponsible of me to leave Sevilla at this stage. We’re working hard to change the playing style so that Sevilla play the way the fans feel – I hope we can achieve that. We’re very focused, keyed in and thinking about the match against Real Madrid. All of our preparation is based on that. I hope we go into the game in our best form.”
