National coach of Argentina will be Diego Maradona's new job soon. Can he make it? We don't see football geniuses becoming coaches much in the footballing world so he will be a great case study of what will happen. We know legends who are lousy preditors and bad commentersof football like Pele and Cruyff. I am not sure about their coaching skills though.

He coached Deportivo Mandiyu (1994) and Racing Club (1995) before but there was nothing spectacular about his achievements there. We shall see what he can do to the Argentinian side who have won just one out of the last seven qualifying matches to the World Cup. He will replace Alfio Basile and he could also have some technical staffs from the 1986 World Cup team. his greatest assets are his motivational powers and the admiration he commands from the players and the public. For me, I think the chance to coach talented players like Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero must be the reason behind his interest to coach Argentina.
