Sabella, Grondona meeting postponed for next week

Argentina national team coach Alejandro Sabella will finally meet next week with Argentine Football Association (AFA) President Julio Grondona, as talks between the two to discuss the trainer's continuity were postponed today.

"There is no more time and Alejandro is aware of that," Grondona explained on informing that the planned meeting had been pushed.

Sabella has refused to comment on his future following an agonising World Cup final defeat to Germany in extra time, but when the trainer does meet with Grondona he will finally give an answer to the offer to renew his contract tabled by the veteran AFA chief, in the top job since 1979.

AFA directors are believed to be behind Sabella staying on in the job,

An agreement, however, is far from certain. The agent of Sabella, who took over from Sergio Batista in 2011, revealed during the World Cup that his client was likely to leave the job following the end of the tournament, although his statement was criticised by the coach.

The 59-year-old, previously at Estudiantes, has overseen 41 national team matches, winning 26, drawing 10 and losing just four.
