Sampaoli in heated incident

Former Sevilla Coach Jorge Sampaoli, now in charge of the Argentina national team, has been involved in a confrontation with the police.

The 57-year-old was reportedly driving to a hotel following his daughter’s wedding in his homeland before his car, where he was travelling with two others, was stopped by authorities.

A video has since emerged of the incident which shows Sampaoli shouting “you earn 100 pesos (€5) a month!” at the police, with his two fellow passengers attempting to calm him down.

The Argentine FA have subsequently released a statement in which the manager has apologised for his conduct.
