It was a bane of bad timing. Neither Diego Simeone or Jorge Sampaoli were happy to quit their jobs to battle the coaching role for the Argentina national team adopting the Copa Centenario meltdown in July.

Simeone is locked right into a contract at Atletico Madrid until 2018 and may not do it on the part-time basis while Sampaoli would not walk out on the Sevilla side he joined up with only weeks before.

Argentina ended up using Edgardo Bauza - a Copa Libertadores winner together with San Lorenzo in 2014 - however in reality a yesterday’s man looking increasingly away from his depth.

Bauza scored one victory from the field - the go back of Lionel Messi right after his self-imposed exile - prior to his only victory about it so far.
