Maradona out: official

Just a quick post to confirm the story posted here on HEGS yesterday: the AFA have just announced officially that Diego Maradona’s contract as national team manager won’t be renewed. Julio Grondona seemingly deliberately made Maradona an offer he knew would be rejected yesterday, to sidestep the political fallout from being the man to ‘sack’ Diego Maradona. I need to jump in the shower and go and buy some mobile phone credit right now, but there’ll be more on this from me in the coming days, you can rest assured.
You can follow Maradona, Grondona and all other things Argentine and footbally during the winter break and beyond into the 2010 Apertura via HEGS on Twitter. If you’ve not signed up yet you can do so here.
