Diego is not a Mara-goner!
William Hill have opened betting on whether or not Diego Maradona will still be in charge of the Argentine national team when they play their friendly match against Ireland on the 11th of August.
The bookies make him a 4/7 chance to be in charge of the team to play Ireland, and 5/4 not to be.
Ireland's match against Argentina will be the first soccer international at the new Aviva stadium in Dublin.
The stadium was built to replace the old Lansdowne road which was demolished in 2007.
‘Maradona was given a heroes' welcome on returning home to Buenos Aires, and we think the support he received from the public is likely to persuade him to stay on,' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe ‘However, we are talking about Diego Maradona - who what goes through his head at any given time.'
‘Maradona draws huge media attention wherever he goes - so it would be great news for Ireland and the new stadium sponsors if he stays in charge.'
Will Maradona still be in charge of Argentina for their match against Ireland on the 11th August: (William Hill bet): 4/7 Yes or 5/4 No .
