BUENOS AIRES - Diego Maradona will decide
whether to stay on as Argentina coach after a meeting next week,
the head of the country's football association said on Tuesday.
Argentina's former captain had been due to meet football
association (AFA) chief Julio Grondona this week but the meeting
was postponed after Maradona decided to travel to Venezuela
where he was expected to meet leftist President Hugo Chavez.
"I got in touch with Diego to arrange a meeting with him on
Monday, that's the only thing that's true," Grondona was quoted
as telling state news agency Telam.
He dismissed reports the AFA had already arranged a contract
for Maradona to stay on as coach until 2014.
The AFA said last week Maradona would be formally invited to
carry on as coach until the World Cup in Brazil.
He has kept a low profile since returning from South Africa
where his highly-fancied Argentina team were thrashed 4-0 by
Germany in the World Cup quarter-finals.
