Sergio Aguero: “Sampaoli can say what he wants” aiming at Argentine coach after first World Cup defeat

Argentine striker, Sergio Aguero is one of the few player currently not happy with his country coach Jorge Sampaoli, who blamed the players for their 3-0 defeat to the hands of Croatia on Thursday.

Now the Argentine are just right on the edge of facing elimination from the group stages following their 3-0 defeat to Croatia on Thursday and their shared points with Iceland.

A poor start to the FIFA World Cup has left Sampaoli in a bad shape, as he could just be questioning his own tactics or formation with a 1-1 draw with Iceland at the opener.

Speaking to the media about the defeat to the Vatrenis, Argentina head coach said via Goal: “Everything that happens to the team and the players’ drop in form is down to the management. The plan against Croatia did not work out.

“I was very hopeful, the defeat pains me a lot, but clearly I did not read the game properly.”

With Sampaoli blaming himself, he still was able to shift some of his blames to the Argentina team for not being able to adapt well to his tactics.

Which was asked by a TYC Sports presenter to Sergio Aguero, who said: “He can say what he wants.”

Scoring the only goal Argentina has in this World Cup tournament so far, Aguero will be looking to give it all he has in their last game in the group stages against Nigeria, which will be a defining game for the Argentines.
