Argentina National Team Management

Argentina head coach Gerardo Martino  has announced his resignation barely a month before the Olympics.
Argentine media reports Martino was frustrated at clubs not releasing players for the national squad in time for the Olympics.

The 53-year-old departs just days after Argentina lost on penalties to Chile in the Copa America final.

In a statement Martino indicated he quit because of a "lack of decisions" at the head of the Argentine FA (AFA) and "serious problems" in selecting a squad for the Olympics.

At present there are only nine players in Argentina's Olympic squad, and the president of the country's Olympic committee has hinted he may not send a team.

The AFA has also been struggling amid a power vacuum that followed the death of long-time president Julio Grondona in 2014.

The AFA has been placed under the administration of a Fifa committee in order to prepare it for new presidential elections in 2017.
