Alfio Basile said on Monday that he will become coach of Argentine national soccer team, replacing Jose Pekerman who stepped down after the World Cup in Germany.

"Obviously, I'm very proud to coach the Argentina national team again, like any Argentine would be," Basile said before his second stint with the team started.

"I'm looking forward to it greatly, especially seeing the quantity of great players we have."

The 62-year-old former defender, regarded as an exponent of attacking, football, was also at the helm from 1991 to 1994.

He won the Copa America twice -- in 1991 and 1993 -- and led Argentina to the second round of the 1994 World Cup.

Pekerman resigned after taking Argentina to the World Cup quarter-finals where they lost on penalties to hosts Germany.
