Sampaoli keen to build around'very excited Messi in Argentina team

Former Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has been unveiled as Argentina's new Coach after signing a contract until the 2022 World Cup.

"We have to build a team that respects the history of Argentine football", the 57-year-old Sampaoli said.

Most players in the squad have been involved in three consecutive narrow defeats in finals: World Cup 2014, Copa America 2015 and Copa America Centenario 2016.

Sampaoli has been linked with the job for a couple of months and that grew when Edgardo Bauza quit the Albiceleste.

He has reportedly signed with the Argentine Soccer Association (AFA) until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, after almost two years of turmoil at the Argentine FA.

"The difficulty in the World Cup qualifiers is real", Sampaoli, whose first qualifier will be at Uruguay on August 31, said.

Sevilla announced last week they had reached an agreement with the Argentinian Football Association and handed them a deadline of June 1 to complete the deal. "I talked to him and he's very excited".

It'll be just under two weeks after a bomber killed 22 people at a Grande concert in Manchester . A Ticketmaster spokesperson said: "Sadly, over 10,000 unscrupulous applications have been made".

Argentina now lie fifth in their qualification group and only the top four automatically go through to the finals.

There are four rounds of matches to go with Argentina on 22 points from 14 matches, behind already-qualified leaders Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and Chile.

"We want the world's best player to feel happy being here".

Argentina face Uruguay in Montevideo on Aug 31.

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.

"It is a dream that I cherished for ages".
