I think Diego Armando Maradona was the best footballer of all time. That said, I still had some scepticism on Mr. Maradona becoming Argentine national coach: it is not a precondition that if you were a great player, you would be a great coach, and Mr. Maradona also had limited credentials as coach.
That said, I hoped that Mr. Maradona's charisma and personality would give the already super-talented side an extra boost, and while it may too early to give a judgement, it raises hopes to see how Argentina under Mr. Maradona has done so far.
Mr. Maradona won his first two friendly matches against Scotland and France, and this weekend won in his first competitive match in a South American world cup qualifier by trashing Venezuela 4-0 and playing a good game of offensive football.
It is looking great for Argentina, in particular for an Argentina-fan like myself, but surely also for anyone who likes good football.
