Argentina postpone decision over Sampaoli's future

Argentina have postponed a decision on Jorge Sampaoli's future until the end of July after the coach agreed to take charge of the Under-20 team, the country's federation announced.

Argentina were eliminated from the 2018 World Cup by France after narrowly getting out of the group stage in Russia, and following their tournament-ending loss Sampaoli said it was not the time to discuss his future.

Sampaoli, 58, met Argentina's federation president Claudio Tapia and vice-president Daniel Angelici on Monday to talk about the team's performance at the World Cup. After the meeting, the AFA announced Sampaoli will manage the Under-20 team in the L'Alcudia this summer tournament and his future will be reevaluated at the end of this competition.

"In the next executive committee meeting, which is planned for the end of July, the members will make a joint evaluation about Sampaoli's work and future," AFA said in a statement.

Sampaoli will take over Sebastian Beccacece responsibilities as the coach of the U20 team.

Beccacece left the position and his role as Sampaoli's assistant last week to become the coach of the Superliga Argentina team Defensa y Justicia.

According to reports, Sampaoli's contract clause would demand the AFA to pay more than $8 million if he's fired before the 2019 Copa America.
