Edgardo Bauza has been sacked as coach of Argentina's national team after a poor run of results, the president of the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) said on Monday.

The 59-year-old Bauza was asked to push the team over the edge after a strong spell with San Lorenzo and a short stint with Sao Paulo.

Bauza oversaw eight World Cup qualifiers for the Albiceleste, but after winning just three of those the national side are facing the possibility of failing to reach the 2018 tournament in Russian Federation.

Argentina national team coach Edgardo Bauza has been fired, according to Clarin.

Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli is the leading candidate to replace Bauza, having been heavily linked to taking charge of his native country for the first time.

While Simeone has, in the past, suggested a part-time job as Argentina coach could be mutually beneficial, Sampaoli's desire to take over on a long-term deal will be enough to ensure the situation does not become a face-off.
