What he said:
"Since I left, I have never seen the Argentina team… And I think I will not see them again."
Diego Maradona makes it clear that he has no more interest in the Argentinean soccer team. The footballing great was national coach for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He was later sacked following the 0-4 loss to Germany in the quarter-final.
What he really meant:
“The Argentine national team is neither my responsibility nor the Argentine Football Association (AFA) my paymasters.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“You can take me away from my Argentina but you can’t take away the Argentina in me.”
