EVEN if he watches his side lift the World Cup at the Stade de France in July, it seems that Argentina's coach, Daniel Passarella, will be looking for new employers later in the summer.

Passarella said this week that he is unlikely to stay in Argentina. "Once the World Cup is over, I'll probably work for some European club," he said.

Passarella was the captain of Argentina's 1978 World Cup-winning side and took over the coaching job after the 1994 tournament. He made his name as the coach of the Buenos Aires club River Plate, leading them to two national titles. Having largely maintained discipline among his volatile squad, he is unlikely to be short of offers.
