Argentina's New coach Edgardo Bauza

Argentina named coach Edgardo Bauza (আর্জেন্টিনার নতুন কোচ এদগার্দো বাউসা) to run the national team Monday, as the nation seeks to regain its football prowess and convince superstar Lionel Messi to return from early retirement.

Bauza, 58, takes on the job after a strong season at Brazilian club Sao Paulo, which he coached to the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores.

“We hope he will have the success we all need,” said Armando Perez, the president of a committee named by FIFA to whip things into shape at the crisis-plagued Argentine Football Association (AFA).

Bauza has won two Copa Libertadores — one in 2014 with Pope Francis’s favorite team, San Lorenzo, the other in 2008 with Ecuadoran side LDU Quito.

Bauza’s number one job will be to convince the Barcelona star and five-time World Player of the Year to reconsider.

“He’s in contact with Messi,” said Perez.

Meanwhile, Bauza must get Argentina ready for two key dates on the 2018 World Cup qualifying trail: against Uruguay at home on September 1, and away at Venezuela on September 6.
