Aguero takes aim at coach after 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, reports Goal.

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

While a 1-1 opening-game draw with Iceland wasn’t ideal, the crushing defeat to Croatia in Nizhny Novgorod was far more damaging and left Sampaoli to question his own game plan.

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.
