Diego 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."

@Soni_JX Argentina didn't win 2014 world cup and Messi didn't end being a leading goal scorer BT he ended up being best player of the tournament. In yo first statement u said Di Maria proved it in 2014 World cup. Ma question is wat is it that u say Do Maria proved in Brazil 2014?

@Manono...being "the player of the tonarment" by achieving anything on the field of play or by being voted by his global groupie club? .......That so called "footballer of the tonarment", did he managed the ultimate task, thus to help his team lift the trophy or was he the leading goal scorer of the tonarment? Give an answer and I will trespond accordingly to your request.

MXM.....let this COW go stay in Spain and watch his idol siss-messi rulling LaLiga where he is only capable of shining with refree sponsored goals and trophies. At UEFA level Maradona must forget......there is 1 and the only Emperor there. At Global Level PELE is the only larger than life legend of football. At World Cup level......his growing mash TOKOLOSHE is just an average COW. De Maria proved it in 2014......Aguero proved it in Russia.
