Diego Maradona still in Argentina frame

Diego Armando Maradona

National team director Carlos Bilardo claims the door remains open for Diego Maradona to return to the Argentina helm.

It was confirmed last week that Maradona's contract as Argentina coach was not going to be renewed however, Bilardo — who Maradona accused of betraying him — insists there are no names in the pipeline to succeed the 1986 World Cup winner and believes he could take up his role again if he sits down and talks to AFA president Julio Grondona.

"If Diego comes and talks, I don't know what can happen.”
