Diego Maradona has replaced Alfio Basile as Argentina coach and will make his managerial debut in a friendly against Scotland in Glasgow on 19th November.
The Argentina legend has been appointed to succeed Basile following his resignation after their World Cup qualifying defeat to Chile.
One of Maradona’s first tasks it to fly to England to run the rule over two members of his squad, Manchester United’s Carlos Tevez and Liverpool’s Javier Mascherano.
“I am travelling to England on Saturday to watch (Carlos) Tevez and (Javier) Mascherano play. And in Scotland I am going to make my coaching debut,” he told a press conference.
Maradona’s second match in charge of Argentina will be a friendly against France in Marseille on 11th February.
