Looks like Soccerblog might have made a pretty accurate prediction on July 27th.
" Maradona's end is full of loose threads and entanglements. He will be back because it appears likely that the nation and the Argentinian government are desperate for this telenovela to go on. His image needs rehabilitation.
The other reason is that there are simply no suitable candidates to step up. Jorge Luis Borges might have been alluding to this sort of phantasm in his fictional world of "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius".
Now, it appears as if Carlos Bilardo is dangling the olive branch and swiveling his hips invitingly for El Diego to make a comeback.
" The problem is not with Maradona, it is with those around him."
The problem is that there have been no serious candidates forthcoming for the job. Only Checho Batista has been appointed on an interim basis and he will coach his first match on the 11th when the Albiceleste take on Ireland.
Ole.com aptly titles this change of heart as: "We're all mad."
