Diego Maradona: My conditions must be met
Under-fire Argentina coach Diego Maradona has revealed that he is unhappy with certain events that have taken place since his appointment.
The 48-year-old also stressed that in order for him to continue as manager, he must be allowed to work ‘under his conditions’.
Maradona has been under intense pressure following Argentina’s failure to deliver in crucial World Cup qualifiers, leaving his side in a tricky position, currently fifth in the South American qualifying group.
“I have a commitment with the guys, having said yes to Julio [Grondona] when he invited me to his house asking me to coach the national team was something very nice, but then came lots of things that I didn’t like, and we will discuss them later on,” he said.
“There are things that I didn’t like and to continue my conditions will have to be met.”
The coach also put the high number of bookings his side have picked up down to the attitude displayed by the team in every match.
“We have a team with lots of yellow cards as we kept on getting yellows in each match, in all of the matches in which we played for our lives.”
