Martino in Argentina talks
Former Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino was in talks to take over the Argentina national team hotseat, the new president of the country's football federation, Luis Segura said Thursday.
Martino, 51, who was in charge at Barcelona last season, won the Argentine league title with Newell's Old Boys in 2013 and is seen as the favourite to succeed Alejandro Sabella who stood down after the World Cup.
"We haven't decided anything. When we have a coach, be it Martino or another, we will announce it," said Segura, who has just taken over from Julio Grondona who died last week.
