Ricardo La Volpe is at it again.

The Argentina-born manager of Costa Rica said Wednesday he will meet with the country's soccer organizers to evaluate the team's performance in the Gold Cup and Copa America, and will then make a decision about his future.

La Volpe took command of the team in September with the task of getting it to the 2014 World Cup.

"There are no projects (medium to long term). Good things come when they are thought out and well-planned," La Volpe said. "My aim is not to measure results, but the growth" of the players.

He added that he sees a "hard road ahead" as far as his prospects of staying at the helm of the team.

The country's press has reported that the manager would resign if current soccer federation president Eduardo Li is not reelected in August.

But La Volpe said he has not been contacted by Ecuador's soccer authorities to take over that team from current manager Reinaldo Rueda.

Costa Rica got three points in Group A in the Copa America, behind Colombia and Argentina.

After the 3-0 loss against Argentina on Monday, La Volpe stated that "we are on the right track."
