Tito Vazquez, whose contract as Argentine Davis Cup captain was not renewed after his team’s final-round loss to Spain, takes issue with one of his players, David Nalbandian, whom he has had problems with in the past.

"I didn’t see Nalbandian as a positive leader, but I was willing to give him another chance," Vazquez told TyCSports. "I don’t think the same way as Nalbandian, and do not share many of the [ideas] about leadership."

Vasquez added that Spaniard Rafael Nadal is "a guy who you want to have on your team. He’s a motivational leader and was in the stands encouraging [his team]."

Martin Jaite, who once coached Nalbandian, is said to be the leading candidate for the captain’s position. Vazquez said that a Davis Cup captain "should not be friends with the players."
