Argentina name Sao Paulo coach Edgardo Bauza as manager

Argentina have hired Sao Paulo manager Edgardo Bauza as the new coach of the Albiceleste ahead of World Cup qualifiers in September.
The Argentina Football Federation (AFA) announced the move on Monday night. Acting president Armando Perez gave the job to Bauza over finalists Ramon Diaz and Miguel Russo.
The search was complicated by ongoing institutional chaos in Argentine football, and allegations of misappropriation of AFA funds, with the national government and FIFA stepping in to appoint a Comision Regularizadora (Normalising Commission) to sort out the situation.
