Argentina players want Jorge Sampaoli kicked out before Argentina’s last game against Nigeria, with Sergio Aguero hitting out at his manager after the crushing defeat by Croatia, reports Daily Mail Online.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was in no mood whatsoever to hang around after the match as he stormed out of his very brief and heated interview, where he appeared to hit out at Sampaoli.
Argentina were defeated 3-0 on Thursday, leaving them on the brink of World Cup elimination and after the final whistle, Sampaoli admitted that his 'project has failed' and that he struggled to find a system to get the best out of Lionel Messi and Co.
