Diego Maradona, theArgentiniansoccer legend best known for his 1986 “Hand of God” goal against England in the 1986 World Cup, is poised to become the head coach of the Argentina national team.
From ESPN SoccerNet:Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona is set to be named coach of the national side after he came out of a meeting with Argentinian Football Association president Julio Grondona on Tuesday. The Albicelestes have been without a coach since Alfio Basile stepped down for personal reasons on October 16 and although Grondona has yet to announce it to the press, reports suggest that the official presentation will take place on Thursday.
The 48-year-old Maradona has just six months of coaching experience under his belt and there is this little issue.
Should be interesting.
