Reports: Aguero To Be Dropped After Failed Player Mutiny

Reports: Sergio Aguero To Be Dropped After Failed Player Mutiny

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 25, 2018 09:00 PM @KeeganKruger

A report has emerged suggesting that Argentina star Sergio Aguero, who was one of several players who tried to get under-fire manager Jorge Sampaoli sacked, will be dropped for La Albiceleste's must-win match against Nigeria on Tuesday.

Reports: Argentina Squad Hold Crunch Talks With Manager

The South American side, currently last in Group D, need to beat the Super Eagles and then hope Croatia beat Iceland if they are to have any possibility of qualifying for the competition's round of 16.

According to the Daily Mirror, a group of players approached Argentina FA president Claudio Tapia to ask that Sampaoli either be sacked or give them a voice in upcoming team selections.

The Manchester City striker is said to be one of the stars who led the revolt against the manager as he was substituted off during the team's embarrassing 3-0 loss to Croatia.

Sampoali, who has got the backing from Tabia to remain in charge, is apparently set take out his anger on the Citizens star, who will apparently be replaced by Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain for their final Group D match.

There are rumours Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero will also be sidelined for the clash against the African side, with Franco Armani is set to get his first cap.

Argentina Star Responds To Players-Sampaoli Unrest

Aguero is the only player to have scored a goal for Argentina in the tournament so far.

I am waiting......I trust that Nigerian's understand the fact that they are facing 11 men same as their team with 11 men.

every coach is a puppet of Massisy so Yol should blame Massisy and Maradona for setting the first eleven sidelining the great Paulo Dybala akere and leave the tattoo man alone case close

The tattoos on the body of that coach say it all. Not an example at all.
