Argentina's football federation chief insisted Monday that coach Lionel Scaloni will remain with the World Cup winners.
"Scaloni is the coach of the Argentina national team. We are both men of our word, we said yes to each other. I have no doubt that he will continue," Argentine Football Federation (AFA) president Claudio Tapia said.
He then guided Lionel Messi and the squad to a third World Cup with victory over France in the final in Qatar earlier this month.
However, when he was named coach in succession to Jorge Sampaoli after a last-16 exit at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, he was not a popular choice.
"Ninety-nine percent of people thought we were wrong or even crazy," said Tapia.
"But this team brought happiness to the people with the titles they won."
