The president of the Argentine Football Association (AFA) has revealed that the nation looked into the possibility of appointing Manchester City's Pep Guardiola as their new head coach. However, they still have a marvellous opening day record over the last 20 years, as 15 wins, three draws and only two defeats sees them top our table. and new boss Maurizio Sarri will fancy maintaining Chelsea's strong start with a win at Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

He said: "Before saying anything or doing anything, you want to observe and see if you see the same mistakes which we've done previously".

The Merseyside outfit will be aiming to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in fourth place but invested heavily in their squad over the summer. From next season it will be quicker, much slicker, and we will be closer to cracking the communication to make sure fans in the stadium and at home know what is going on.

"Although, I think Liverpool and United will both be a lot closer to them this time".

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us".
