Well I’ve heard the toilets flush backwards in the Southern Hemisphere, or is that just Australia? That doesn’t seem to be the only thing ass backwards. In news from the Argentinian Football Association, Diego Maradona’s named was on a list of names to fill the vacant coaching position. That’s all well and good minus the fact the man was fired a month ago. Do the Argentines want a take back?
What’s worse is his reign as coach didn’t end well……
He blamed the pair for plotting his downfall, claiming that they had gone back on their word after telling him his job was safe after the Germany rout in South Africa.
“Grondona lied to me. Bilardo betrayed me,” Maradona claimed after his colourful and controversial reign as Argentina coach came to an abrupt end.
Bilardo denied such accusations saying….
“I am sure it’s not him who is guilty, but his entourage. I defended and I will continue to defend Maradona to the death,” said Bilardo last week.”
Those are pretty strong words for the shortest tenured coach in Argentinian Soccer history. It would be interesting to see if they actually go through with rehiring Maradona. Sounds like a lot of nonsense and politics have been covered up, and we the public aren’t getting the full story. How do you rate Maradona’s performance? He had, arguably, one of the most talent teams in the World Cup and got worked over by Germany in the Quarters. If I’m the Argentina Football Association I move on. I believe he underperformed, but what’s worse is he also brought a zoo with him that seemingly compromised the integrity of the nation’s soccer team.
