Diego Armando Maradona

Diego Maradona will no longer continue as Argentina coach after the association's executive committee unanimously agreed not to renew his contract.

Maradona met with the the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) president Julio Grondona yesterday, with suggestions a new four-year deal was on the table.

The 49-year-old had said he would sign the contract as long as his entire backroom staff were retained.

Grondona revealed the board had decided not to renew Maradona's contract.
