It’s over, now what about Maradona?
Of the tough elimination of Argentina against Germany there is little to say. In fact, if there were some things, many Argentineans would not want to share comment. But there is an important issue left, what will happen now with the head coach Diego Armando Maradona? Does he deserve to stay another cycle?
It’s amazing what this figure achieved not only within the field, but on the outside. He took a team that did not play well with Basile, which he did not improve much, and qualified for the World Cup in agony. At that time the journalists criticized, the fans did not want him there, and it seemed that the mystique of the 10 was over.
Diego claimed after the qualifier against Uruguay that the team was “not in good shape” but promised it would improve for the World Cup. Maradona met his word, and despite saying that the team was “six and a half points,” he put on the field his “beasts” that had four great games.
The duality is revealed immediately. All those who came to ask for his resignation even after the classification were found after the chorus of “Passman la tenés adentro” and other songs of support. It showed a bias error of Argentina, and fortunately the people learned to recognize and encourage the selection.
However, a painful 4-0 stained the record of faith and dream of the coach. Julio Grondona, president of the AFA, would have said to Diego “Not so much crying as you have to run a friendly in August 11 in Dublin”. Apparently the direction of the institution would try to keep him when they meet. What do you think?
