Maradona: I Will Coach Argentina For Free!

Argentina legend Diego Maradona has claimed that he would manage Lionel Messi and the Albiceleste for free following their disappointing 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign.

The 57-year-old has been in charge of his country's national team before, but after their round of 16 exit in Russia, he has claimed he would be happy to take over from Jorge Sampaoli.

Asked whether he would be interested in managing the Albiceleste again, Maradona, who was in attendance for most of their matches at the 2018 World Cup, has claimed he would do it free of charge.

"Yes, and I would do it for free," he said in an interview on Venezuelan TV show teleSUR, according to Reuters.

"I wouldn't ask for anything in return. People think I am happy but my heart is heavy.

"I feel really bad that everything we built with so much effort we destroyed so easily."

Messi Breaks Maradona Record, Writes World Cup History

Maradona was manager of Argentina between October 2008 and July 2010, with his last match in charge being their 4-0 quarter-final loss to Germany at the World Cup in South Africa.
