Jorge Sampaoli could leave his job as Argentina coach this week after the were knocked out of the World Cup over the weekend, according to ESPN. 

According to the report, Sampaoli could make his decision official on Wednesday or Thursday after a meeting with AFA chief Claudio Tapia. 

However, other reports claim that neither has Sampaoli handed in his resignation or have the AFA asked him to stand down from his position. 

What's more, it's been suggested that Sampaoli's told Tapia that, if he still has his support, he's convinced he can lead Argentina to Copa America glory in 2019. 

Not in Sampaoli's favour, though, is the fact that he no longer has the support of many Argentina fans or a section of the dressing room, either. 

For that reason, according to ESPN, Sampaoli and Tapia have mutually agreed that it's time for the former Sevilla coach to leave the job open for someone else. 

Argentina made it out of the group stages at the World Cup thanks to a late winner against Nigeria in their final game, but they lost 4-3 to France at the weekend to exit the competition in the last 16.
