Diego Maradona believes he has a chance of coaching Argentina if Jose Pekerman does not lead them them to World Cup glory this summer in Germany.
The legendary striker told Argentinian TV: 'There is a good willingness of Argentinian Football Association boss Julio Grondona to have me work as a coach of the national team.
'If Jose Pekerman wins the World Cup, I could work with the youth.'
Maradona was asked about Argentina's chances.
'We need to remember the last World Cup, in that we were the main favourites and we returned to Argentina after the first group stage,' he said.
'The boys know that in Korea-Japan we made history. So that error will serve as an example for us to do things in a different way.'
