Maldini sure of Paraguay's success in 2002 World Cup

ASUNCION, April 12 (DS) -

In the short period of the work with the Paraguayan national team, it was found out that Italian specialist Cesare Maldini doesn't like giving interviews to mass media representatives. However, he agreed to give an interview to Argentinean radio station La Red correspondent Fernando Niembro causing rumours on his discrimination towards local journalists. This interview was made public by one of the Argentinean TV channels. During the interview Maldini said that unlike Italy, it is necessary to be careful in Paraguay because unexpected events can occur at each and every moment. The head coach probably hinted the absence of a necessary organization dealing with football in that country. He also mentioned that he intends to entrust goalkeeper Chilavert to release penalties.
Niembro started the interview as follows: "I was surprised that you agreed to head the Paraguayan national team." With this statement Niembro hinted how such an excellent specialist as Maldini could agree to head a team that is not among great ones of the world.
Answering this question, Maldini said that it gave him an opportunity to take part in the World Cup.
He added: "Paraguay play in a particular manner. Of course, they aren't distinguished with their special mastery but players are temperamental."
The great specialist also touched upon the theme of favourites of the 2002 World Cup. He considers Argentina and France to be the key favourites.
Maldini announced: "The performance level of German and Brazilian national teams is falling now. As to Italy, they have many good players, for example, my son and Vieri. As a matter fact, my son will participate in the World Cup for the fourth time."
Concerning their rivals in the World Cup, Maldini said: "Spain are the best in the group thanks to their high-class players. But I believe in the success of Paraguay. They have already proved their capabilities."

Diaz to take over from Maldini

Former Fiorentina and Inter favourite Ramon Diaz will be the new manager of Paraguay after Cesare Maldini’s contract expires at the end of the World Cup. Diaz’s agent Antonio Caliendo said: "Ramón could be Cesare Maldini's heir on the Paraguay bench. I had contacts with their federation and since the relationship with Maldini will end at this summer, they are thinking about Diaz."

Cesare in Paraguay quit threat Sunday 28 April, 2002

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cesare Maldini has threatened to resign as Coach of Paraguay following heavy criticism from the local press.

The former Italy boss was chosen to lead the South American country into the World Cup, but bemusement over his negative tactics and apparent lack of knowledge about the Paraguayan League has left his position looking shaky.

Now ‘Cesarone’ has hit back. “Everyone has to take their own responsibility for events,” commented the Coach, “and my responsibility is to lead this team.”

“If you don’t like that then I have no problems in going back to my home in Italy with the first flight out of here.”

Criticism escalated following the humiliating 4-0 defeat against Sven Goran Eriksson’s England earlier this month.

Veteran goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert has come out to publicly defend the tactician, but teammates Carlos Gamarra and Julio Cesar Enciso were less supportive.

“Everyone has a right to think whatever they want,” concluded Maldini, “but what counts is that I am in charge of this team.”

July 21st....

PARAGUAY

Olimpia, who face Brazil's Sao Caetano in the first leg of the Libertadores Cup final on Wednesday, had a poor warm-up when they lost 1-0 at home to Sport Colombia at the weekend.

The defeat left them with only three points from three games in the championship's second stage (Clausura).

Sport Colombia are second with seven points, behind leaders Libertad on goal difference.
