Argentine Football Association fire coach Bauza

MNA Sports Desk: Argentine Football Association (AFA) fired Edgardo Bauza as coach of the crisis-hit national team as it struggles to qualify for next year’s World Cup, reported news agency.

It was the first big move by the Association since it last month picked new executives tasked with ending three years of turmoil in the Argentine game.

“We have reached a verbal agreement. We have told Edgardo Bauza that he is no longer the coach of Argentina,” the AFA’s new president Claudio Tapia told reporters after meeting with Bauza at the association’s headquarters.

Argentina, whose captain Lionel Messi has been banned for four matches for insulting a match official, are fifth in the South American group with four qualifiers remaining.

Bauza presided over eight matches, all 2018 World Cup qualifiers, with three wins, two draws and three defeats.
