Former Argentina and Chile coach Sampaoli takes over at Atletico Mineiro

Rio de Janeiro (AFP) – Former Argentina and Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli was named as the new boss of Brazilian top-flight side Atletico Mineiro on Sunday.

The 59-year-old, who led Santos to the runners-up spot in Brazil last season, penned a one-year deal.

He replaces Rafael Dudamel after the Venezuelan was sacked following the club’s shock loss to a fourth-division side in the Brazilian Cup.

“It’s confirmed, Sampaoli is our new coach,” tweeted Atletico president Sergio Sette Camara.

Sampaoli was coach of Chile from 2012-2016 and Argentina from 2017-2018.
