FeriAtsMaradona was not really impressive during the qualifiers. It would be understandable if he was sacked during that part of his reign. However Argentina performed quite well in the world cup itself.
I know it's hard to stay on as a manager with a nation addicted to success, especially after an earlyish exit. But Argentina seemed very positive throughout and their defeat at the hands of Germans seemed like a one off to me.
ZolaWould any other manager achieve a similar result with the current squad? Probably yes...Is it worth bearing all the drama, media attention and controversy around Maradona? Probably no...
judastToo many striker and playmaker, they don't have enough fighter on the back of their fields..
