Jorge Sampaoli's Argentina move confirmed by Sevilla

World Cup future of Argentina, Lionel Messi now in hands of new coach Jorge Sampaoli

"There are some very good teams trying to do the same thing as us", added Sampaoli, who has signed a deal until the 2022 World Cup.

The 57-year-old, who was officially unveiled on Thursday with a contract through to the 2022 tournament in Qatar, told reporters in Buenos Aires that he also has a task to reach next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation. "I want to get back to talent and the art of dribbling, in order to move forward". The national side's malaise is a mystery at first glance, given their star quality with various players in top European clubs.

But before the qualifiers, Sampaoli's squad has two friendly matches in June: against Brazil in Melbourne on June 9 and at Singapore on June 13.

During his time in charge of Sevilla Sampaoli won 27, drew 12 and lost 14 of his 53 matches in all competitions, leading his troops to a 4th place La Liga finish, and thus qualification into next season's Champions League. Diego Maradona previous year branded the AFA's management a "mafia". He has also coached Chile and club Universidad de Chile, having tremendous success at both, including guiding the nation to its first ever Copa America title in 2015, with a penalty-kick shootout win over his birth country.

That crisis prompted then-coach Gerardo Martino to quit and be replaced by Edgardo Bauza, who was sacked last month.

Sampaoli has taken charge of the team at a time when their qualification for the 2018 World Cup to be held in Russian Federation is in jeopardy. "With enjoyment of the game - not with a sense of obligation".

"What it means to be Argentina Coach?" He has described himself as a disciple of another Argentine coach who has made a mark with Chile and in Europe: Lille coach Marcelo Bielsa.

"He is better than me", Bielsa said.
