Gerardo Martino has claimed that he would suggest Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino for the Argentina national team managerial position.
Martino, who now coaches Serie A club Atalanta, managed Argentina during the 2015 Copa America as well as the 2016 Copa America Centenario and opted to quiet after losing both finals to Chile.
Martino has now said that he would like to see Pochettino succeed Edgardo Bauza, speaking to ESPN, he said, “As a matter of friendship and relationship, I would love to see the coach of Argentina to be Pochettino.”
Martino also suggested that Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone and Jorge Sampaoli, who coached Chile twice to Copa America glory, against Argentina, who were then managed by Martino, should be considered as well.
There is certainly a good chance that one of the managers mentioned by Martino will succeed Bauza. The opportunity to manage Argentina to World Cup glory will surely be appealing for the aforementioned names.
