Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella has refused to confirm he will quit his role after this Sunday's World Cup final against Germany.

Former Sheffield United and Leeds man Sabella has guided Argentina to their first World Cup final in 24 years after sealing their place in the showpiece with a penalty shoot-out win over Holland in the semi-finals

Sabella's agent, Eugenio Lopez. claims the 59-year-old will step down from his position regardless of the result against Germany at the Maracana.

"I am sure Alejandro won't continue at the national team. To go at the top is always positive," Lopez told Radio Delta FM. 

"I believe he gave everything to the national team and that now is the time to give way to another person.

"He's going. He's leaving whatever happens. Whether they are champions or not, a cycle is ending."

Sabella has tried to play down the talk over his future insisting he was focused only on Sunday's match.

"The future, for me, is the next match, the World Cup final," Sabella told Ole. "Thinking about something different would be disrespectful."
