A statement released by Sevilla on Friday afternoon explained that Sampaoli's departure remains dependent on the drawing up of the appropriate documentation which must be fully signed by an agreed deadline of 1st June.

Right now Argentina is fifth with 22 points behind Brasil (33), Colombia (24), Uruguay (23) and Chile (23).

Jorge Sampaoli has described his appointment as a dream job, and it means he will finally have the opportunity to coach his country.

Sampaoli leaves Sevilla having guided them to the top four but, for much of the season, this was a campaign that promised more.
