Maradona wants another chance as Argentina boss

Maradona makes desperate offer to coach La Albiceleste

Diego Maradona can't seem to stay away from the spotlight while the 2018 FIFA World Cup is being played. This time, the Argentine legend left no stone unturned when talking about Argentina's elimination from the tournament during his TV show "De la Mano del Diez" ("Hand by hand with El Diez"), which is aired by Argentine TV network Telesur.

"El Pelusa" referred to La Albiceleste's exit from the competition in a critical tone, revealing that he doesn't see France as one of the candidates to win the trophy this summer.

"I wish God gave me the strength to return to the pitch, but time doesn't forgive anyone, and now, I'm 57 years old and I have to watch my national team being slammed by a lower-quality team. It's wrong to see that all our legacy has been destroyed easily," Maradona stated.

Then, the Argentine idol admitted that he wouldn't think twice if he was asked to take over as La Albiceleste's boss.

"Absolutely, I'd step in and help. I would do it for free," Maradona added.

The former midfielder, who has been involved in several controversies during the summer, had the chance to coach La Albiceleste back in 2010, when he led the team to the FIFA World Cup Quarter finals. His team wasn't able to put up a fight against Germany, the team that eliminated them from the competition after a 4-0 blowout.

Maradona has always been overly critical of Argentina's performances, especially since Jorge Sampaoli took over as coach. The former Chile boss might be sacked by the Argentine Football Association due to this summer's disappointing run in the competition, but having Maradona take over once again might not be the best choice due to his poor managing record.
