It has been speculated that Martino would walk away from Camp Nou at the end of the season but Willy Albergoli told Onda Cero that his friend would do no such thing.

“Knowing him I don’t think he’ll leave Barcelona,” Albergoli said.

“I don’t think he’ll leave after signing a contract.

“He’s going to respect the contract providing the conditions are met.”

It was suggested that Martino could take over the Argentina national team after the World Cup in place of current coach Alejandro Sabella.

Albergoli believes Martino is one of the candidates for the role with Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone the other.

“Tata has never said he’ll take the job although the issue is very clear,” Albergoli continued.

“When Sabella goes there are two candidates: Tata and Simeone.

“Tata though is a man of his word. I know he will respect his contract.”
