Aguero takes aim at Sampaoli after Argentina defeat

Argentina forward Sergio Aguero took aim at his manager Jorge Sampaoli following Thursday’s disastrous 3-0 defeat to Croatia at the World Cup.

The Albiceleste stand on the brink of early elimination from the tournament after gaining just one point from their first two matches.

“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,” the Argentina boss said after the game.

Though Sampaoli blamed himself, a TyC Sports presenter told Aguero that his manager had said his players failed to adapt to his tactics, thereby shifting the blame onto them.

When told about Sampaoli’s assertion, Aguero told TyC Sports: “He can say what he wants,” before storming out of the interview.
