BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella might step down after Sunday's World Cup final against Germany.

Sabella's spokesman, Eugenio Lopez, told Buenos Aires radio La Red on Friday that ''I think he will end after the World Cup, complete the cycle and leave for another project.''

Sabella has coached Argentina since 2011.

Lopez suggested that Sabella would have been more likely to stick around had Argentina been eliminated in the second round or the quarterfinals.

Lopez says ''it's better to leave while you're up, rather than when you're down.''
