The Great Argentine footballer Diego Maradona believes that the Argentina Football Association (AFA) needs restructuring so that the national team can succeed to get success again. Argentine team was eliminated by losing 3-4 to France in the pre-quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup 2018, held in Russia.
Maradona said “A house has to be built on solid foundations and today the mother house of (Argentine) football is a disaster.”
The 57-year-old great player also questioned the directors of AFA and the other staff officials who celebrated President Claudio Tapia’s return from Russia on airport.
He said, “It can’t be the case that the corrupt people who are with him go to receive him at Ezeiza,”
On the question of preparing Argentina coach again, Maradona said “No, no, no. Not me. I’m not talking about the coach,” he said. “I’m talking about directors who know what they are doing.”
It’s noteworthy that Argentine team is looking for new coach after the removal of Jorge Sampaoli.
Poor performance of Argentina in the FIFA World Cup 2018
Argentina was place in the group D of the 21st edition of FIFA World Cup 2018. But anyhow, this FIFA World Cup was a nightmare as per Argentine point of view.
In the group stage the less reputed Iceland stopped them with a 1-1 draw and then in the second match the runner up of the tournament Croatia defeated them badly 3-0. Anyhow Argentina managed to beat Nigeria in their last group match 2-1 and made it to the last 16.
But this achievement of Argentine team couldn’t stand for long and in pre-quarterfinal match the Champions of FIFA World Cup 2018, France crushed them 4-1 and sent out of the tournament.
The star player and captain of Argentina, Lionel Messi could only score 1 goal in 4 matches of the tournament. there is nothing to say now.
