Default Rumor: Maradona to become Argentine Manager

Pekerman has said in the past few months that Maradona should coach the team and now that Argentina has been eliminated the rumblings have grown louder. And Of Course Maradona wants to coach the team, and with Pekerman resigning and with the success of Jurgen Klinsmann as Germany's coach it's probably going to happen.

Do you think he'll be a good coach?

( - Maradona wants to coach the Argentina national team to cap his career.

Former Argentina superstar Diego Maradona says he aspires to the national team job currently held by Jose Pekerman – even if the Albiceleste win World Cup 2006..

"If my country wins the World Cup, in addition to being very happy, I will fight to have the opportunity to become coach of the national team," he asserted. "And if Argentina do not win the cup I will fight even harder to get that chance."

"Being the coach of the national team is something that I owe to myself," said the football icon. "It would be the best way to end my career."
