Manager Profile

Jorge Sampaoli is back in the international managerial arena after leaving Sevilla for Argentina in June 2017.

Sampaoli previously managed Chile between 2012 and 2016, leading his troops through to the last-16 of the 2014 World Cup - where they lost to hosts Brazil - before memorably hoisting the Copa America in 2015 for the first time in the country's history.

The Argentine, who was nominated for the 2015 Fifa Coach of the Year, has frequently been linked with a move to the Premier League, most recently with Chelsea, but for the time being he remains out of work.

The energetic and explosive tactician favours a high-pressing, aggressive, possession based approach to the beautiful game, something he used to devastating effect with Chile.

The progressive coach has experienced a lot since venturing into the managerial arena back in the mid-1990s, and you can expect him to continue to make waves in the near future.

Jorge Sampaoli Quotes

One night, I went to a bar; I was with a woman. We talked all night. We laughed, we flirted, I paid for several drinks of hers. At around 5am, a guy came in, grabbed her by the arm and took her to the bathroom. He made love to her and she left with him. That doesn't matter, because I had most of the possession on that night.

We've managed to win the Copa in Chile, and now everybody is euphoric. That's all I can think about. This is a priceless and unforgettable feeling and it will last for a long time.

I believe that the only way to succeed is by uniting players with a love of playing...try to inspire in them a love of the shirt derived of enjoyment.
