Maradona: I Want A 2nd Chance Like Dunga

Argentina legend, Diego Maradona, has questioned why he has not been given another chance to coach his country’s national team, as Carlos Dunga has with Brazil.

The 1986 World Cup champion, who managed Argentina during the World Cup in South Africa, is likely to be snubbed for the post unlike Dunga, who had been given a second chance at the helm of the Selecao.

"The team has no coach. I played for Argentina. If Brazil called Dunga, why didn't Argentina call me?"

"Anyway, I'm happy in Dubai (where he currently resides) and I don't have to kneel before anyone," he told Ole.

Alejandro Sabella took the Albiceleste to the final of the World Cup for the first time since 1990, but Maradona criticized the Argentina coach, who recently stepped down from his post.

"I don't want to be harsh on Sabella and the players, But I don't think Argentina won a single game well,” Maradona added.

"You can look for good passages of play, but anyone who looks for a game in which we played well won't find one."

Meanwhile, the bosses of the Argentinian Football Association have met with their favourite to replace Sabella, Gerardo Martino.

According to reports in Argentina, the former FC Barcelona manager has agreed to a four-year deal until the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
