Diego Maradona Offers to Return as Argentina Manager, Cites Superior Win Record

Diego Maradona Offers to Return as Argentina Manager, Cites Superior Win Record

Football legend Diego Maradona has expressed a desire to return as coach of Argentina's national team after their 2-4 loss to Nigeria in a friendly.

In any case, Argentina can only be so upset with the current management considering little was at stake on Tuesday with some key players missing, leading to Maradona's plea ahead of the World Cup.

Maradona, a former Argentina captain and manager, published a comparative table on his Instagram account showing that his period as a coach of the team had the highest efficiency among all the managers that led Argentina since the 1970s. "I am furious because they are throwing away our prestige, but it is not the fault of the lads". "I want to come back!"

"Who won most??" Maradona wrote.

The 1986 World Cup victor has been an outspoken critic of Sampaoli since the former Chile boss took charge of Argentina in June.

The former Boca Juniors and Napoli striker led Argentina to the quarterfinals in South Africa, where they were knocked out by Germany.

The Argentines only qualified for next year's World Cup finals thanks to a hat-trick from Lionel Messi in their last game against Ecuador.

Although the defender consoled himself that it's better to lose in the flattering defeat now than at the World Cup, he however admitted that the Nigerian team is the most physical side the country had met in the recent time.
