Hey guys .. this Maradona as Argentina coach realy makes me wonder ...which direction football is taking . These dyas it seems as soon as a former player retires .. he's first choice to succeed the current coach when he's fired ..

Note : Tony Adams & Martin Keone @ Portsmouth...Maradona for the Argentina national team ...himself

Then they get hired vvery quickly ,sometimes to very tough and demanding Coaching jobs ..

some swim .. ( Rijkaard, Keane, Klinsman) others just drown ( Gullit, Dunga)

So what are your feelings to this ..?

Do Ex players make great managers/ coaches ?

IS earnng your stripes through years of learning your craft ..overrated and uneccasary..?

Or is this type of thing ...more about marketing and bosted sales and prestige ..in the shrt term ..?
