The Madness of Maradona's Reign as Argentina Boss

    Runtime: 17:05

    Diego Armando Maradona is one of the greatest footballers of all time, but he probably isn't one of the greatest managers of all time.
    Despite struggles with his health and almost no managerial experience, Maradona was appointed as the new manager of the Argentina national football team in October 2008.
    His two-year reign would include La Albiceleste's qualifying campaign and participation in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, and there was rarely a dull moment for El Diego.
    In this documentary, HITC Sevens takes a look back at Maradona's time managing Argentina, reflecting on the chaos and turmoil one of football's most colourful characters two years in charge of the two-time world champions.

Cant believe he's gone Adios Diego, he really had a crazy life but in the end "it doesnt matter what you did with your life Diego what matters is what you did with ours" Diego is eternal i feel bad when people point out his mistakes he did more good than bad can you really blame him for his mistakes? Look at his up bringing and career throughout

No coach could win under that national flag. Every year they have arguably the best squad on the planet yet the issues with Argentina is their attitude. It doesn't matter who coaches them or who plays for them. Terrible collective attitude and far too many options for each position so it's tough to find a winning combination.

At the Perú match, the only thing that Diego told Palermo before subbing him in was "GO OUT AND FIX THIS". He was clearly offside when he scored. Even though he was past his prime, Palermo was still a hell of a player for Boca. Perú was bottom of the table during those qualifiers, and they were eliminated in March when they lost at home to Chile. They were absolute garbage during those years, with a lot of issues with key players' discipline, and still managed to put on a fight against Argentina. That was the state of mess the Argentinians were in. A month prior, when Brazil visited Argentina, Diego forced AFA to switch the River stadium for Rosario, at the Rosario Central stadium, because "they would feel the pressure" (River Plate's stadium has an athletics track and has the stands a bit far away from the pitch). Brazil won with ease, secured qualification in Rosario... and because they feared that the Argentinians would give them contaminated water like they did to Branco at Italia 90, they brought their own bottled water. Yes, South American qualifiers are probably the best and craziest international competition on Earth.

16:00 Here's the cherry on top: if AFA hadn't cancelled the season of the lower divisions due to the pandemic, Gimnasia y Esgrima de la Plata would have been relegated. Since the season ended before the spots for promotion to first division were decided, AFA ruled to suspend all promotions and relegations at every level of Argentine football, thus saving Gimnasia.

Maradona famously said before the Germany game in 2010 "No nos vamos a comer el chamuyo de los alemanes", which roughly translates to "we're not gonna fall for the German lies (or sweet talk)", responding to how the press were talking wonders about Löw's team. Turns out they weren't lying, unfortunately.

“He played, he won; he peed, he lost. Ephedrine turned up in his urinalysis and Maradona was booted out of the 1994 World Cup. Ephedrine, though not considered a stimulant by professional sports in the United States or many other countries, is prohibited in international competitions. There was stupefaction and scandal, a blast of moral condemnation that left the whole world deaf. But somehow a few voices of support for the fallen idol managed to squeak through, not only in his wounded and dumbfounded Argentina, but in places as far away as Bangladesh, where a sizable demonstration repudiating FIFA and demanding Maradona’s return shook the streets. After all, to judge and condemn was easy. It was not so easy to forget that for many years Maradona had committed the sin of being the best, the crime of speaking out about things the powerful wanted kept quiet, and the felony of playing lefthanded, which according to the Oxford English Dictionary means not only “of or pertaining to the left hand” but also “sinister or questionable.” Diego Armando Maradona never used stimulants before matches to stretch the limits of his body. It is true that he was into cocaine, but only at sad parties where he wanted to forget or be forgotten because he was cornered by glory and could not live without the fame that would not allow him to live in peace. He played better than anyone else in spite of the cocaine, not because of it. He was overwhelmed by the weight of his own personality. Ever since that day long ago when fans first chanted his name, his spinal column caused him grief. Maradona carried a burden named Maradona that bent his back out of shape. The body as metaphor: his legs ached, he couldn’t sleep without pills. It did not take him long to realize it was impossible to live with the responsibility of being a god on the field, but from the beginning he knew that stopping was out of the question. “I need them to need me,” he confessed after many years of living under the tyrannical halo of superhuman performance, swollen with cortisone and analgesics and praise, harassed by the demands of his devotees and by the hatred of those he offended. The pleasure of demolishing idols is directly proportional to the need to erect them. In Spain, when Goicoechea hit him from behind — even though he didn’t have the ball — and sidelined him for several months, some fanatics carried the author of this premeditated homicide on their shoulders. And all over the world plenty of people were ready to celebrate the fall of that arrogant interloper, that parvenu fugitive from hunger, that greaser who had the insolent audacity to swagger and boast. Later on in Naples, Maradona was Santa Maradonna, and the patron saint San Gennaro became San Gennarmando. In the streets they sold pictures of this divinity in shorts illuminated by the halo of the Virgin or wrapped in the sacred mantle of the saint who bleeds every six months. And they even sold coffins for the clubs of northern Italy and tiny bottles filled with the tears of Silvio Berlusconi. Kids and dogs wore Maradona wigs. Somebody placed a ball under the foot of the statue of Dante, and in the famous fountain Triton wore the blue shirt of Napoli. It had been more than half a century since this city, condemned to suffer the furies of Vesuvius and eternal defeat on the soccer field, had last won a championship, and thanks to Maradona the dark south finally managed to humiliate the white north that scorned it. In the stadiums of Italy and all Europe, Napoli kept on winning, cup after cup, and each goal constituted a desecration of the established order and a revenge against history. In Milan they hated the man responsible for this affront by the uppity poor: they called him “ham with curls.” And not only in Milan: at the 1990 World Cup most of the spectators punished Maradona with furious whistles every time he touched the ball, and celebrated Argentina’s defeat by Germany as a victory for Italy. When Maradona said he wanted to leave Napoli, some people tossed wax dolls stuck with pins through his window. Prisoner of the city that adored him, and of the Camorra, the Mafia that owns it, he was playing against his heart, against his feet. That’s when the cocaine scandal erupted, and Maradona suddenly became Maracoca, a delinquent who had fooled people into thinking he was a hero. Later on in Buenos Aires the media gave a further twist to the knife: live coverage of his arrest, as if it were a match, to the delight of those who love the spectacle of a king disrobed and carted off by the police. “He’s sick,” they said. They said, “He’s done for.” The Messiah who came to redeem southern Italians from their eternal damnation was also the avenger of Argentina’s defeat in the Falklands by means of one sneaky goal and another fabulous one that left the English spinning like tops for several years. But when he fell, the Golden Boy was nothing but a numb-nosed, whoring phony. Maradona had betrayed the children who adored him and brought dishonor on the sport. They gave him up for dead. But the body sat up. Once he had served his cocaine sentence, Maradona became the fireman of the Argentine squad, which was burning up its last chances to reach the ’94 World Cup. Thanks to Maradona, they made it. And at the Cup once again, as in the old days, Maradona was the best of the best until the ephedrine scandal hit. The machinery of power had sworn to get him. He spoke truth to power and you pay a price for that, a price paid in cash with no discount. And Maradona himself gave them the excuse, with his suicidal tendency to serve himself up on a platter to his many enemies and that childish irresponsibility that makes him step in every trap laid in his path. The same reporters who harass him with their microphones, reproach him for his arrogance and his tantrums, and accuse him of talking too much. They aren’t wrong, but that’s not why they can’t forgive him: what they really do not like are the things he sometimes says. This hot-tempered little wiseacre has the habit of throwing uppercuts. In ’86 and ’94, in Mexico and the United States, he complained about the omnipotent dictatorship of television, which forced the players to work themselves to the bone at noon, roasting under the sun. And on a thousand and one other occasions, throughout the ups and downs of his career, Maradona said things that stirred up the hornet’s nest. He wasn’t the only disobedient player, but his was the voice that made the most offensive questions ring out loud and clear: Why aren’t the international standards for labor rights applied to soccer? If it’s standard practice for performers to know how much money their shows bring in, why can’t the players have access to the books of the opulent multinational of soccer? Havelange, busy with other duties, kept his mouth shut, while Joseph Blatter, a FIFA bureaucrat who never once kicked a ball but goes about in a twenty-five-foot limousine driven by a black chauffeur, had but one comment: “The last star from Argentina was Di Stéfano.” When Maradona was finally thrown out of the ’94 World Cup, soccer lost its most strident rebel. And also a fantastic player. Maradona is uncontrollable when he speaks, but much more so when he plays. No one can predict the devilish tricks this inventor of surprises will dream up for the simple joy of throwing the computers off track, tricks he never repeats. He’s not quick, more like a short-legged bull, but he carries the ball sewn to his foot and he has eyes all over his body. His acrobatics light up the field. He can win a match with a thundering blast when his back is to the goal, or with an impossible pass from afar when he is corralled by thousands of enemy legs. And no one can stop him when he decides to dribble upfield. In the frigid soccer of today’s world, which detests defeat and forbids all fun, that man was one of the few who proved that fantasy too can be effective.”
