National team target Martino holds first AFA meeting

Gerardo Martino, the man wanted by the AFA to succeed Alejandro Sabella as coach
Former Newell's Old Boys coach Gerardo Martino has held his first meeting with directors from the Argentine Football Association (AFA), who hope to make the Rosario native the successor to Alejandro Sabella in charge of the national team.

Martino, who most recently coached Barcelona to second in La Liga before stepping down after a year, left the talks with an offer made to him by interim president of the organisation Luis Segura, general secretary Miguel Ángel Silva and Arsenal de Sarandi chief Julio Ricardo Grondona, the son of the late AFA leader.

The trainer subsequently left Buenos Aires for Rosario to mull over the opportunity of coaching the Selección. An answer is expected over the weekend.

"When we have the issue resolved we will announce it, I cannot give you step-by-step details. We will confirm officially if the new coach is or is not Martino," Segura told reporters outside the apartment of Humberto Grondona, who hosted the encounter in the Puerto Madero neighbourhood of Buenos Aires.
