The Argentine football crisis continued as the head coach of the team Gerardo Martino resigned from his post.
The coach blamed his resignation on the problems of Asociacion de Futbol Argentino (AFA), one of the issues that Wold Footballer of the year Lionel Messi gave when he announced his resignation from international football.
Martino’s decision comes just a week after their shock loss to Chile at the Copa America Centenario at the United States of America. The loss was the second successive one in two years, after the team had lost in similar manner through a penalty shootout last year. The team took the loss very bad as they had enjoyed a great tournament till the final.
