Paraguay coach Gerardo Martino will tell team officials about his plans Thursday after being touted as a possible future leader of Argentina's national team.

Paraguayan federation president Juan Angel Napout made the announcement after Sunday's 3-0 loss to Uruguay in the Copa America final. Napout says he will give a ''hug'' to Martino no matter what decision he makes.

Martino, who is an Argentine, only says ''I continue to be the Paraguay coach.''

Argentine Football Association officials will meet Monday to discuss the future of coach Sergio Batista. The AFA is under pressure to replace him after Argentina was beaten in the quarterfinals. Martino, Alejandro Sabella and Carlos Bianchi have been mentioned as replacements.
