Brazil coach Dunga as played down his playing rivalry with Argentina coach Maradona, saying it will have no bearing on Saturday’s World Cup qualifier between the South American countries.

Both players captained their countries to World Cup wins and also played against each other in the 1990 World Cup but this encounter marks their first meeting as coaches.

“We each had our history as a player and we are now taking steps as coaches,” Dunga told a news conference on Wednesday.

As players, the pair could not have been more different. Dunga was a combative defensive midfielder while Maradona was a creative forward but the Brazilian said that was also irrelevant.

“Football with 11 Maradonas would not work, football with 11 Dungas wouldn’t work,” Dunga said. “Each one has his characteristics and way of being, completely different from the other.

“I’m not concerned about the others, I’m concerned with the Brazilian national team.”
