All the happiness that the epic caused victory of the Argentina national team against Brazil at the Maracanáon a warm evening, sat in the back seat when the press conference of Lionel Scaloni came to an end and announced, to the surprise of absolutely all those present and the fans who followed the coach’s word on television or social networks, that It will take some time to decide whether we will remain in office or step aside.with no further explanation than a ‘lack of energy’.



Immediately after this bomb, rumors and possible reasons circulated at full speed. The first was related to a political issue and alerted the coach He had not wanted to comply with Claudio Tapia’s request to reject Sports Joint Stock Companies, a few days before the second round of elections. This was quickly dismissed, although the issue remained afloat.

And there were short circuit with the president of AFA for various reasons. In fact, it is still remembered that Chiqui announced the contract extension with great fanfare ahead of the World Cup and before there was a total agreement.

Moreover, there are persistent discussions a debt for the prizes after winning the World Cup And especially, There are important differences regarding the friendly matches that Argentina playsas Scaloni wants renowned rivals, but ends up having to deal with teams with a low level of sport, but with offers that are economically impossible to refuse.

All this caused wear and tear that only the inner circle of Pujato’s coach was aware of, as even the team was surprised by the announcement at the Maracaná.


Although he has a signed contract until the end of the 2026 World Cup, Viamonte Street understands this The competition to be played in the United States in mid-2024 could be a turning pointas he defends the title he won three years earlier in Brazil.
