Jorge Sampaoli has revealed his intention to stay in charge of Chile following their recent World Cup exit.

La Roja suffered penalty heartache in the last 16 against Brazil to signal the end of their tournament, but they impressed throughout the group stage to finish above holders Spain.

"I have a contractual agreement on top of my word to carry on after Copa America," Sampaoli, who took charge of the South American nation in 2012, is quoted as saying by ESPN. "This is an important tournament which Chile has never won and we're hosts. After the Copa America we will evaluate precisely if we carry on or not with the process."

The next edition of the Copa America gets underway on June 11, 2015.
