Lionel Messi may be a doubt for Argentina's World Cup qualifiers after Barcelona said on Monday that their star has a sore left hamstring.
Sergio Aguero and Javier Pastore have been ruled out of Argentina's World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Venezuela through injury.
Edgardo Bauza has virtually no time to implement any new strategies ahead of his first match in charge of Argentina, writes Tim Vickery.
Argentina legend Maradona told TyC Sports: "Maybe his retirement was staged to make us forget about the three final losses."
"We can't hang on what we have done in the Copa America Centenario. There are still many more matches in this qualifying," he said.
"If there is one thing Messi has shown us it is that he makes very good choices," said Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza.
