Maradona calls it quits

Diego Maradona will no longer continue as Argentina coach after the association’s executive committee unanimously agreed not to renew his contract.

Maradona met with the the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) president Julio Grondona yesterday in a bid to resolve his future, with reports suggesting a new four-year deal was on the table.

The 49-year-old had said he would sign the contract as long as his entire backroom staff were retained.

Grondona revealed details of the talks to his board today and the AFA have confirmed they have decided not to renew Maradona’s contract.
