PEKERMAN quits Argentina
It is finally official, José Néstor PEKERMAN have decided to resign as Argentina manager after a little less than 2 years in charge.
Julio GRONDONA, AFA president, confirmed it late last night and the official announcement will follow soon.
Personally, I think this is a great loss for Argentina as despite failing to make the right substitutions at the right time during the World Cup, JOSE did a great job all of the time he's been involved with the AFA and was a key figure for the developement of many of the great talents we have in our team today.
The succession won't be easy and it'll start to take shape this weekend when the big bosses will meet in the AFA and start discussing who's going to replace PEKERMAN.
