Maradona urged to stay as the coach of the team

Maradona urged to stay as the coach of the teamArgentina’s recent devastating 4-0 loss against Germany in the World Cup quarter-finals has raised a question regarding Maradona’s continuation as Argentina’s coach.

An online poll by a newspaper showed 63.1% people want Maradona to quit. Similar results were shown by other polls as well.

The last major title Argentina won was the Copa America in 1993. The team had won the World Cup in 1978 and 1986. This year the team came back on track for a seemingly third World Cup title after winning all the group matches against Nigeria, South Korea and Greece.

Even in the Super-16 round the team defeated Mexico 3-1. But then the humiliating loss on Saturday to Germany followed, which raised many questions regarding Maradona’s tactical knowledge.

However, despite the loss, the officials and coaching staffs want Maradona to continue coaching the team. The assistant coach is of the opinion that it is impossible for Maradona to step down after failing to win the Cup.

According to them, “No Argentine has ever given so much joy on the field as Diego Armando Maradona.”

Maradona had joined as the coach of the team in the month of October 2008.
